On first glance, this menu may seem a bit “ho-hum” but I think you might find ingredients included in the soup which are not typical and help elevate the dish into something a bit more substantial than the ordinary. And the muffins are something that my Mother used to make—they may sound unusual, but if you think about it, mayonnaise is a combination of oil and eggs, which is a simple replacement for the fat and eggs must muffin recipes contain anyway.
