I missed the cheese potato soup we’d make back when we could still have potatoes, so when my brother produced a batch of seafood stock cooking some snow crab legs, I immediately started working on a cheesy cream soup made for filling, meatless meals for those pesky Fridays in Lent. :-)

A few weeks ago, my sister and I were browsing recipe sites, looking for ideas for a snack to make, when I ran across cream of mushroom soup.  Boy did that bring back memories — and cravings! — so I’ve made a version we can have.  :-) cream of mushroom soup

I started this soup from a recipe my friend Ginny got from her grandmother that my sister Amanda loves to death.  The basic soup recipe was fine — potatoes, milk, butter, cheese — but I wanted to make a more exact version with some more punch. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
