Most of we Atlantans, and perhaps other Southerners, may be housebound today due to the weather which includes snow, sleet and ice. So I thought today would be a great day to make a big pot of homemade soup and share with you my personal favorites. I’ve selected a nice variety hoping you’ll have all the ingredients to make at least one of these, so you don’t have to go back out to the grocery store. I’ve personally made all of these, with the exception of the South Carolina She-Crab Soup which I’m making today, so they are tried-and-true tested recipes in my kitchen. I’ll let you know on Facebook tomorrow how the South Carolina She-Crab South turns out. Please share with us your favorite homemade soups whether you, grandma or Souper Jenny makes it.

Pumpkin and Shrimp Bisque, Epiciuous.com, March 2000, from The Herbfarm Cookbook by Jerry Traunfeld. Note: I made this at Thanksgiving and again at Christmas. It’s really excellent and you can use canned pumpkin. It’s good topped with the Sage and Parmesan Croutons from the Butternut Squash Soup.
