Creamy Mushroom Soup

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

Today is just one of those days.  You know those ones when you have a reasonable sized list of to-do’s but mid afternoon you look at the list and realize that almost none of it has been done?  I don’t know where the day has gone, although I can’t complain too much, I have got the major things on my list done.  I will complain though, that my only kitchen time so far today was cooking a big pot of beans for chili tomorrow and doing dishes, which is lame!  I definitely need some creative time in the kitchen!  But speaking of not knowing where the day has gone, I think I’ll stop typing about not getting things done, haha.

So, I’ve been on a huge soup kick lately.  Yesterday was rainy and grey all day, which by my definition is a soup day.  Today however has been bright and sunny and warm which is totally not a soup day to me, but I’m still headed into the kitchen to make another batch of this after I click publish.  To be totally honest, I’ve made this twice already, it’s really that good even though it’s nothing fancy.  I blame it on being mushroom deprived though.  I can hardly ever think of yummy mushroom ideas, especially since the hubby wont touch them.  But this, I don’t mind keeping all to myself.  Or at least just sharing with the kids.

Ooh, and speaking of warm weather.  I was totally surprised and excited to find things sprouting out in our yard and even in my herb bed.  I even got this fresh thyme out of my garden.  I’m so excited for green things in our yard, it’s not even funny!  I didn’t share anything about our garden last year, but I’m looking forward to sharing at least a little bit this year.  There’s nothing more exciting to me than food growing in my own yard 😀

The last meal I made with mushrooms my husband said tasted like dirt (for the record, I didn’t agree with him) I bet he’d eat this though 🙂

not usually a fan of mushrooms, but this looks so incredibly creamy and delish. i bet it pairs nicely with a fresh loaf of whole wheat bread.

Yeah, my to-do list is ridiculous. I feel like I am a hamster running around a wheel and just can’t catch up!

This soup looks fabulous–it’s been way too long since I’ve had a good mushroom soup. I never make it because my husband wouldn’t be a fan, either.

My to=do list is longer it has ever been, and I am losing it! It is baking that keeps me sane! This soup looks really great! I love mushroom and I love the chunkiness of this soup… Thanks for sharing!

I kept on making a to-do list, prioritizing things around the house. Ending up doing the less priority in it. Yummy and creamy mushroom soup is the best when taking a break in doing all of this to-do list. 🙂 recently posted..Warm Okra and Tomato Salad

Unfortunately there are too much mushrooms in the mushroom soap for me…
I’m okay with some mushrooms alongside a piece of meat… But it looks perfect for my wife – she loves mushrooms!

I definitely have days like that, sometimes I’ll look at the clock and realise that it’s 5pm and I cannot think what I’ve done with the day!

What a lovely simple and tasty soup.

Heidi this looks so good! Mushrooms with thyme is one of my all time favorite flavor combos and this soup is right up my alley! If I omit the flour I can even make it work with my low carb thing so I’m getting the stuff to make when I shop today! Very excited! Like you I also get so happy when my garden wakes up and living in SC that happens so much earlier than in CT! I had fresh herbs pretty much all winter which was amazing to me! The other day I was walking around and my fig tree has tiny figs on it and my passion flower vines which survived several frosts this winter is loaded with buds that should flower any day! I was totally giddy about it – such a garden geek! 🙂 Can’t wait to try your soup! Thanks for the recipe!

Aw, thank you!! I meant to send you a message, FB just gives me an error message when I click the like button from the email. Even when I search for your page on FB, it just doesn’t come up and when I click from your site it just goes to my news feed. It’s like it’s totally blocked from me. I have no idea why! Silly FB 🙁
