Ill tempered Shrimp Soup

Our fridge was pretty bare late last week and I was NOT in the mood to drive to town to hit the grocery to make dinner.  I had a bag of shrimp in the freezer, a loaf of bread, and a very well-stocked pantry and spice cabinet, so I decided to try a shrimp soup.  I found a Killer Shrimp Soup recipe on line and decided to use that as my guide.  I think it turned out pretty darn good!  Let me know what you think!!

Bon Appetit!
