this is just reminding me my grandma; it has been ages since I had this; my grandma used to do this soup every sunday and serve us before lunch. thank you for posting this recipe, delicious one!!! and I prefer to be served with the bones ofcourse, even now, my teddies and myself have a great debate on who has got more and who has got less bones on the plate, all of us at home like the bone marrow!! :)
