Have a Soup-er Week
October 31, 2016
It’s soup-er time and the living is easy…. Cool days call for a large bowl of soup with a salad, and a hunk of bread to round out the meal. Oh yeah! Since we are having cool and rainy weather in the Pacific Northwest, I thought it would be fun to cook up a different soup every day for a week. Are you up for the challenge?
Today’s soup is mushroom. Now I have to tell you I’m not a fan of mushroom soup. The only time I made mushroom soup in the past was to take it out of a Campbell’s can and add to another recipe or sauce. I’ve never made it from scratch to eat as a soup. So this is a challenge for me too!
What prompted me to make mushroom soup? I had a bunch of mushrooms that needed to be cooked and I wanted to try something new. I looked through several cookbooks and online for the perfect mushroom soup recipe and there were none I thought were great, and this could partly be due to the fact that I don’t like mushroom soup.
So I made this one up and it could probably use more tweaking, but it was quite palatable, even as is, even for me. And the recipients of my “test kitchen” gave it a thumbs up.
