Mushroom Soup


This is the best mushroom soup ever well I think so any way!!  

As the weather is getting a little cooler in the evenings  this does the trick to warm you up.

1lb (454kg)  Portobello Mushrooms  chopped
2 cups vegetable stock (hot) I use continental stock pots one little pot makes the 2 cups just dissolve one stock pot in 2 cups of boiling water 
2 onions chopped small pieces
2 cloves garlic chopped
3oz Butter
2 tbs Plain Flour
Cream to server (optional)

I took some pictures to show starting from top left.

Fry the onions, garlic & butter in a large pan stir for a few minutes to glaze.
Add chopped mushrooms & cook for 4 min's keep stirring
Add flour & stir it through
Add hot stock & stir

Cook on stove for 15mins (don't boil) & stir a few times.

I normally leave to stand for 5 mins then put my hand held whisk through just to make sure all the soup is smooth then heat through & serve with some cream (optional)

I also warm a crusty loaf with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese over the top in the oven for a few minutes, tasty to dip this is one of my favourite soup recipes hope you enjoy it as much as I do, it makes about 4 bowls, I will be enjoying it tonight.

Make Grow Thrift

Just a quick one today & very easy nothing clever at all I just wanted underneath my desk to be tidy it has been driving me mad for ages it just looks awful, I decided it needs to be hidden so this is what I came up with.

One basket cannot remember were I got it from as I had been using it in my kitchen to hold all my plastic containers, need to get a new basket now!!  Spotlight will have them.

To cut out my circle I used a tape roll for a guide as it was big enough for the plugs to fit through, I used a leather man knife so be careful what ever you use.

I am now happy I have nice hidden wires & I can even put in some of my magazines so feeling very tidy!!!

If you have any things you have created grown or thrifted please share it here on Jodies blog  she would love to see you drop by.
