RECIPE BACKSTORY
Yup!! Definitely in a soup mode today!! LOL Enjoy!! (o:Kay:o) Note: To point up the flavor of cream soups, add a tiny bit of fresh veg, finely chopped, just before serving. In summer months, it's helpful to remember that most cream soups are good cold -- but they have to be really cold!! They look very appetizing and refreshing if served in clear glass bowls!!! Just thought I'd share the little tidbit!!
