Montana Heart Song's Note:
Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. Meatballs can be made ahead and frozen if desired. This soup can be made very fast. I ate a sausage & shrimp soup during the holidays and I liked the taste. I love preparing comfort food. The soup freezes well., I like to purchase Ready to Cook shrimp that are shelled, tailed & devined. Serve with toasted crusty bread.
