You mom was a wise woman. She got her children to eat some food items that they probably would not have eaten separately but when combined they gobbled down. I really like this one. I enjoyed reading it. It reminds me of my soup that I prepare about twice a month, but my husband still fusses. I love it but for some reason he sees it as food for someone who is sick. LOL..Your visit to my page was revivifying. Sara
