Elegant Oyster Soup - fantastic!

A friend of mine returned from Apalachicola, FL today and brought me a pint of fresh oysters.  I searched for oyster soup/stew recipes and this one looked the best to me:&nbsp;http://allrecipes.com/recipe/elegant-oyster-soup/detail.aspx&nbsp; <

It was fantastic!  I will make this again so many times.

What I did differently:

Used half and half instead of heavy cream - it's all we had
Omitted sage - didn't have any.
Omitted artichoke hearts - don't really like them.
Instead of 1/2 cup of each vegetable, we just threw the following into the Cuisinart: 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 1 small onion.
Used 8 oz. quartered mushrooms instead of sliced mushrooms.

This soup tasted like something you'd get in a nice restaurant and say "This is GREAT!".  I might eat the rest of it for breakfast tomorrow.

I just made an oyster stew last Sunday! We had just returned from Chincoteague Island, VA where they are known for their oysters and we had brought home a bushel basket of them. My recipe was from my Eastern Shore/Chesapeake Bay area cookbook, but I'm going to check out this recipe you used! Aren't oysters delicious?!

I've just started eating oysters in the past few years - since we started vacationing at St. George Island, FL. I don't eat them raw, so I mainly made fried oyster salads. This recipe was great and I love having other options for cooking oysters. I will make this again many more times.
