m668csWowzers!  Another winning cookbook from my friends at Gooseberry Patch!  I again had trouble deciding but your first recipe review is for Chicken Enchilada Soup.  It LOOKS yummy!  And super easy!  Below is the recipe.  I wanted to go ahead with it – such staple ingredients that I thought you might want to try it tonight as well. It is so simple you can whip it up after a long day. I will be posting my review and pictures in the morning!  It’s a cold, wet day here and this is going to be delicious, I just know it!
