Mulligatawny - An Old Favorite

This is a repeat post from back in March, but it's good enough to see again.  It really is my favorite soup.  And I eat a lot of soup, so that's saying something.  Plus, it gets better as the days go on, making it perfect to whip up on Sunday afternoon and eat all week.  

The original post includes the recipe, but it's so good I don't want you to have to click through to get it.
