Cream of mushroom soup

on March 24, 2013

It was a lazy lazy weekend,, well,, as usual 🙂 I was in mood to have a good, hot steaming bowl of soup, When it comes to soup I usually prefer the creamier versions 😛 Well a little heavier on the tummy, But I love it.

When I was a kid, whenever we visited restaurants I used to always order “Cream of chicken soup”, “Cream of Tomato soup”, and so on, Well by now you must have guess I am not really a calorie conscious person coz I love to eat,

This recipe is quick and easy, ready in minutes and tastes like restaurant kinds, Am sure you’re gonna love it !! 😀 Let me know the feedback
