KPI met - Home Made Mushroom Soup

Alright, hubby requested or sort of hinted in a way, asking me when will he be able to have this type of soup at home. And when he asked, he was sipping away to a bowl of Cream of Mushroom Soup at NYNY.. 
So, as usual, being the dutiful wife (eh hum, clearing my throat), definitely, no disappointment and I immediately went back to my archive on my KIV list. There it goes, Home Made Mushroom Soup from Cuisine Paradise.
I tried Brown Swiss Mushroom as per the recipe for the 1st attempt, feedback was not mushroom-y enough but still considered 'Pass' from the fact that it is made from scratch. Today, I substitute it with Portobello Mushroom as I simply love it. It is definitely yummy and the taste of mushroom is there. I love it. 
And from the children's point of view, this is more yummy as my older gal asked for 2nd helping and kept on commenting that it is NICE! Inside, I am so happy. Hubby also said it is better but would prefer a more creamier version. So I will have to tweak a little..
