Well, tonight I was being lazy… I didn’t really want to cook. But, I’ve neglected my blog for some time now and slowly falling behind my goal. So, simple and easy was the theme of the evening. Just going on what I had in my kitchen I decided on cream of mushroom soup and chicken over mashed potatoes… nice and simple… to my surprise making cream of mushroom soup from scratch was amazingly easy and there is zero comparison between those made from scratch and one from a can. I will never, not ever, use canned soup for cooking… or anything else… ever again. Only a few ingredients and about 30-40 minutes and viola.. the most amazing cream of mushroom soup I have ever had. Though, I don’t remember seeing anything about mashed potatoes in the book… oh well… I made them with the little french technique I’ve learned and they were so delicious.
