Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup (and Chicken Too)

SO you're in the kitchen, chopping your potatoes and onions when you realize you are missing a key ingredient, cream of mushroom soup. What to do? What to do?

Why, you can whip some up! I did this when making my husband's favorite roast. And he loved it.

What you'll need:

2 tbsp butter - you can use margarine if you're that kind of person. ;)

2 tbsp flour

2 tbsp milk (or sour cream)

2 cups mushrooms

And 12 ounces of water

In a pan melt your butter, then whisk your flour in, add your milk (or sour cream) and mushrooms, then water to get it the right consistency.

I then dropped in onions, potatoes and a roast. It was amazing.

You can easily make homemade cream of chicken by subbing out the butter for a couple tbsp chicken broth.
