Country Mushroom Soup

If you love mushrooms and a good hearty soup on a cold winters night for a warm-up meal, you should really like this recipe. My family liked it served with warm, crusty, buttery garlic bread, and sometimes with a really good crispy salad. There are ways to play with this recipe to make it your own. This does not have to be served on cold night, It is good anytime. Try it, I'm sure you will like it.
