Since I am still sick fighting this nasty chest cold,
I'm gonna share a post that I prepared last week.
Cough. Cough. Cough. Cough.
I am driving myself crazzzy.
This is an oldie but a goodie that I have shared many times before.
Since I recently made it for dinner,
I thought that it's worth sharing on the new blog.
Cream of Shrimp Soup
This is the easiest soup ever!
Seriously, it's easier than easy!
I call it a cheater soup and I confess that the recipe probably changes every time I share it.
So, here's what I did this time.
Since I had an extra teenager here for the weekend
I made a larger pot then usual.
For the large pot.
1 to 2 pounds of cooked, peeled, deveined shrimp.
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
1 bunch of celery, chopped
( I think that you already know that this recipe is not on the weight watchers program.. not even close. So don't flinch when I tell you the next part)
1 whole yummy delicious stick of butter.
In a large pot, melt butter and sauté celery and onion until soft.
Toss in Shrimp.
While the celery and onions are sautéing, open...
2 lg cans of cream of chicken soup
1 sm can of cream of celery
1 sm can of cream of shrimp
Dump all of the cream soups into the pot,
add a cup ( sm can ) of milk
and a cup of water.
( you can add more water if you would like to make the consistency a little thinner)
Add Old Bay or other crab seasoning
(How much really depends on how spicy you want it)
and let simmer on low for about an hour.
Serve with a hunk of fresh Italian bread..
I hope that everyone is well and having a great weekend.
See you as soon as I get this sickness out of my house!
