Theresa's Soup

This is a recipe from our old neighbor Theresa Prouty from when we lived in Hickory Hills, IL. She was from Mexico and was a wonderful cook. The kids and I loved to sit in her kitchen and watch her cook. This is Alex's favorite soup and one of the recipes she shared with me. It is also knows as "Almondigas".
