Soup is a number one target this time of the year and it warms the kids and family after a long day. Here in Southern California our cold day's have become farther and fewer as the year go by but that does not make a need for all those wonderful Fall items to falter.
Cabbage Soup*You make the stock first, Note this may seem like a lot of stock but beef stock is used in so may soups and recipes you will find that you can freeze or pressure can any you wish to use at a later date.
