Comfort from Food.

Today I am making Mushroom Soup.

So easy, Melt Butter, add 1 large chopped onion and 1 clove of garlic, cook till softens.

Add mushrooms (chopped) you can use any mushrooms, about 1lb of them, cook for about 4 minutes, sprinkle anout a tablespoon of flour over them stir, then add 1 litre of chicken or vegetable stock and a bayleaf.

Cook for about 25 minutes in fact bring to boil then simmer, remove bayleaf and replace it with a few sprigs of chopped parsley, then liquidise using one of those handheld liquidiser thingy machines, they are brilliant, but wear a pinny because they splatter a bit.. add a spoonful of cream ..

All done!.. now wheres my Jane Austen boxset my daughter bought me, hmmmm?
