    I made this tonight. Fantastic! Tasted just like mom's when I was a kid. :) The only thing I did differently was use a whole pound of beans, a little less water and added celery (I'm not big on brothy soups lol). I have a photo I took of it if you'd like to upload one for the recipe. Let me know, I'll email it to you. Thanks for the recipe; I'll definitely make it again!
