I started by sauteing a gourmet blend of mushrooms in a skillet with oil, cooking sherry, and a small amount of chopped onions (hubs doesn't really like onions, so I try to keep them to a minimum.) I also seasoned with the essentials :)
The mushrooms were an actual prepackaged "gourmet blend" from Wegmans, my favorite grocery store. It had Bella, oyster, and a few other types I didn't immediately recognize.
After those got all soft and yummy I added the soup. I'm not a huge soup fan, so I haven't made a lot of it, but I decided to try this soup from Wegmans. Even though the package just said to heat it up, I obviously bumped up the flavor by added the sauteed mushroom chunks and onion. The soup had a nice flavor, very mushroom-y without being stale or overly salty like other prepared soups we have tried.
Wegmans also has an awesome cheese shop. Like I mentioned above, I chose a nice mild brie and a gouda for our meal last night, but they probably have hundreds to chose from.
Yeah, I ate some of the Gouda while cooking. I was hungry! We were so hungry, in fact, that I didn't get a photo of the yummy bread rounds (seriously. I even ate one without cheese, they were that good) or one of our finished plates. I think the winner of the night was the brie cheese- hubs thought it was fantastic, and even I, who has a love-hate relationship with brie cheese, thought it was pretty darn good. A culinary win for me!
