My son is a seafood lover and he really appreciated this soup when I made it for him. So from my seafood-loving son.... I quote, "YUM"!!

While visiting my Mother-in-Law went out to dinner with her and her friends. They made me try She Crab Soup because they love it. My Mother-in-Law tells her friends that if anyone can make it Mo can (no pressure). I quickly found this recipe and when she came up to see us, I made it for the first time. She was amazed because she liked this better because of the lumps of crab!!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!!
