Your shrimp soup looks very inviting. I've never tried okra and didn't know you could add it to soups.

Soup season is here and I think today or this weekend might be a good time for it. That noodle soup looks gorgeous!

I love soup.
I’ve been making lots of soup lately - leek and potato, cauliflower and carrot, and the newest one was cannellini bean soup. They freeze well, so I can stock up. 😊
