Soup of the Turnip Green Persuasion

It’s that time of year – yes – my favorite time of year, it’s finally Fall. With it comes football, cooler weather, sweaters, and SOUP. Not to mention I have to dig out all my socks. They haven’t been worn in months.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of soup. My cousin who shares my feelings said it best, “I like my soup more like a damp casserole”. I mean, the wisdom in that statement is inspiring. Like me, he’d rather eat something with substance. I prefer to eat something I have to chew, or at least bite. My little family does not share my feelings, and today I’ll share their favorite, and quite unusual “fall-ish” soup. At least this one is biteable.

This is another “Gayla recipe”, a friend who tends to find some of the best ones around! Thanks Gayla for sharing this. I know my family appreciates it. Put it together with a pone of my cornbread and you’ll have a perfect southern meal for any weeknight.
