Cheesy Mushroom Soup

Of all kinds of soup...mushroom soup is definitely my favourite!
I love mushrooms since I was young.
Any kind!
I cooked my first mushroom soup when I was 21 years old,
if i remember correctly.
Ever since, I tried to improve on every attempt.

When I'm cooking this,
fragrance started to flow around my kitchen when butter is melting in the pot.
The fragrance doesn't stop!
I really love it..
the special "aroma therapy".
I'm sure anyone who cooks/bakes, enjoys smelling your own food too!

But it's a pity that I don't have time to bake some crusty bread to go with it. 
It will be great to dip it into the thick soup!
For this recipe, the soup's thick and rich because of the cheese.
Cheese is salty on its own, so I use salt sparingly.
One bowl is definitely not enough for us!
Craving for more...!
