odd... I've never had soup w/ T-day... but now I'm thinking it would be a really good idea...

We've done soup a couple of times, but it won't stick. It's not tradition! My aunt made an interesting cherry soup once, and my husband has tried to serve my family his awesome potato leek soup. The fam thinks it's good soup, but not for Thanksgiving.

Does left over turkey soup count?

No soup for me on Thanksgiving.

In a sense. The night before Thanksgiving (and Christmas) my family can often be found enjoying mugs of oyster stew with a salad and crusty bread.

I wish it were, but it's just not a family tradition. Maybe when I strike out on my own...

No, we never have soup. I think if we ever did have it, people would think it was a weird thing to eat at Thanksgiving. I think a pumpkin soup would be really good, though.

Sometimes. My Mom usually makes it. She's really good with soups. Pumpkin soup. That's a good idea.

I always make mushroom cream soup. It's very good to feed the guests quickly, while the rest of the food finishes, because I never get it all done on time :p

Technically, because the night before every Thanksgiving we make a pot of Potato Soup from an American Girl book I got when I was just a little girl!!! And for the last three years, going on four, I have slowly started to perfect my butternut squash soup. I am kind of a soup expert now, working in a kitchen at a nice restaurant, so I have high hopes for this year!

yes, soup has been part of my thanksgiving for 31 years! we used to have an amazing mushroom soup that we all looked forward to but my mom recently changed it to chestnut soup, which is surprisingly equally as delish!

It hasn't been in years past, but it'd be great for this year as a make-ahead element to the meal.

My dad sometimes makes pumpkin soup as an appetizer.

My boyfriend's Mother made a great spinach soup last year, but usually some sort of pumpkin soup. Never thought of it before, but it is probably better to fill up on soup before to try and curb the eventual overeating.
