The October 11-17, 2009 issue of the American Profile in my Saturday newspaper insert was entitled "Soup's On" A former Navy Seabee (Ken Haedrich) builds hearty soups for the fall and this is one of the soups that looked delicious to me. The recipes are from Ken's book Soup Makes the Meal (Harvard Common Press, 2001). Ken says about the recipe: "No one has ever asked me, but I've thought about what I'd like to eat for my last meal. I'm pretty sure it would be Welsh rarebit on toast points. This soup is just a step or two removed from that dish. The flavor is virtually the same; it's just thinner, though still quite full-bodied".
