My Grandmother was a wonderful, willfull, and wild woman and I loved her dearly. she could make, as the saying goes in my family, "soup out of air" and it'd be delicious every time and maybe a tad different every time too, she never measured a thing, she used what she had on hand. and seasoning was last and considered by who was eating it! Spicy for this one, extra sage for that one, She was a wizard at the perfect meal! and this recipe reminds me of one of her soups, sometimes the simplest things are the best. I've noticed some reviews where the recipe was labled bland - all soups, in my opinion, need to start that way. Whats bland for one isnt bland for another. you know what you like and you know what you dont. if you're making a soup or stew that calls for basil - and you don't like basil, you don't put it in. This recipe allows for personal tastes to rule the stew so to speak and it's a perfectly balanced, delicious stew (over mashed potatoes! YUMMMMY) I add a bit of cajun seasoning, parsley and some black pepper...so good.. I think i'm going to go have a 'lil bit now! :)
