It might seem weird to have hot soup on a very hot and humid day, but two thoughts on that: 1. I grew up in Maryland and we eat crab soup all summer long. 2. When I was in Thailand, they served hot soup and it was like 100 F with somehow 300% humidity. This is a great soup for a hot day.
Carnivore note: the hubs added some smoked turkey slices to the soup and highly recommends.
