Creamy Potato Mushroom Soup

Creamy Potato Mushroom Soup via elisebakesI have a love-hate relationship with Wisconsin winters.  Last week was way too cold, today it’s in the 50s, and it’s supposed to drop down and snow again tomorrow – could we get some consistency, please!  I absolutely love sledding and snowball fights, but I could do with only a month of snow.  And I hate driving on icy roads.  Love it or hate it, it’s here and at least I get to enjoy soup!  Well, I did yesterday, like I said, today it’s too nice out for soup!  I made creamy potato mushroom soup and it was phenomenal.  It had a great flavor and lots of mushrooms!  You could make it in a slow cooker too if you’d rather.
