Souper Saturday

My friend Janel has cool blog, and she has started "Souper Saturdays." She even has a really cool button and logo to go with the name.

But I'm technically challenged, and couldn't figure out how to copy her button and post it on my site. Sigh.

ANYway, I'm playing along, and posting a soup recipe here.

You will LOVE IT. Go make it. Now!

And take a look at Janel's blog........ over here.....

Yum! My parents are coming for Christmas and this would be a perfect meal. They live in Dallas and don't get much seafood anymore.
