    I like the idea of the refrigerator soup. I not to keen on the shrimp, but as you have pointed out, it is to taste.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I can see how it could be modified many different ways. In fact dinner is already a noodle based soup like this tonight.

    And yes sometimes basics are best. =D
