Take cream of mushroom soup.
My dear late mother used to serve it to us as kids.
It was probably Campbell's from a can but we didn't care.
Its creamy, yummy taste just about tickled my taste buds every time she served it.
Years passed and I hadn't had cream of mushroom soup in a long time.
So recently, I made some at home.
I fried onions and mushrooms lightly in oil; made a roux with flour, butter, and chicken broth and added it to the onions and mushrooms; and then added a healthy dose of heavy cream.
Besides a bit of salt and pepper, I sprinkled a tiny bit of nutmeg on top of each bowl of soup.
It tasted AWESOME and brought back memories of sitting at my Mummy's kitchen table, slurping up every bite of yummy cream of mushroom soup.
