Good day for soup

The other day we found so many lovely mushrooms at the grocery store that I decided it was time for some home made mushroom soup.   Here we have some ingredients to get started.  Look at the pretty mushrooms, shallots, butter and cream.....  mmmmm  Wait, where is the dry vermouth?
Oh there it is! 
These are the oyster mushrooms, you can tell why they are called that!

Next we have Shiitake.  I love Shiitake mushrooms! 
Baby Portabellas  How cute can a mushroom be?
Here we go, four kinds of mushrooms, two kinds of onions, beef stock, butter, dry vermouth, and fresh ground salt and pepper.  The cream goes in after it's been cooked and is off the heat.
oh dear, I forgot to get a picture of it in the nice soup crocks with garlic toast and cheese.  Well, use your imagination!

Looks delicious. Mushroom soup is my very favorite but I've never made it. I need to fix that, soon.

I love mushroom soup....but cannot make it due to hubby being lactose intolerant. And there is something about making it with soy milk that just doesn't seem right. Looks incredibly yummy though!
