I made this soup for Thanksgiving dinner, and hubby said he liked it, so I thought I'd post it and see what others think. I much preferred it warmed up the next day, so it fits well into the make-ahead and reheat category. The overnight sit allows the flavors to blend and mellow. Just don't let it boil when you reheat it. I used fat free half and half, and it worked out well. I used pre-cooked shrimp, but the recipe allows for raw ones.
