Mushroom Soup

Coleslaw, Potato Salad, Cold Cut Plate,Red And White Pasta Sauce 016MMMMMM good!  Such a simple soup yet sssooo good.  I try to come up with different recipes for soups so no one gets bored eating them.  I wouldn’t want anyone to stop eating something so good for them.   My love of soup comes from my childhood.  My mother use to make the most delicious soups.  Every Sunday before we went to church there was always a pot of chicken soup on.  That was a staple for Sunday with homemade egg noodles.  So when we got back from church we always had chicken soup for lunch. When I got married and had my own family I always tried to have soup on hand, especially when the kids got sick.  Chicken soup was surely a staple then.  Now, I always have soup for my grandchildren when they come after school.  They really seem to look forward and enjoy it.

Realizing very early on soup could be made from very simple basic ingredients.  But what I couldn’t understand was why everyone didn’t make their own.  I would open my fridge or my cupboards and to see what I had on hand,  add the ingredients to a pot with some water, simmer and within 1-2 hours you had a pot of soup.  Usually most of the soups had a chicken base so in would go chicken or their bones first.  After that step your possibilities were endless.  I encourage you to make and eat more soup.  You will become a lover of this dish and once a convert you most definitely encourage others to do the same.
