Mushroom Soup

After a wonderful week at the beach for The World Food Championships (more coming about that later), Gail sent me home with a surplus of extra mushrooms. What to do with all those mushrooms? Make a creamy Mushroom Soup loaded with the savory flavors of parsley and thyme. Top with some crunchy croutons or crusty bread, Mushroom Soup is a welcome addition to your usual soup rotation.Mushroom Soup
