Soup for Breakfast?

Well if you have been following my blog; you may just be curious.   I am just not the cereal kind of girl.  Growing up cereal was only served on Sunday nights.  Thumbing through cookbooks I came across a recipe and thought I could modify this. Breakfast Ramen. Now growing up we never used to…
