Sheldon's Dried Mushroom Soup
Years ago you shared a recipe for a mushroom soup. I have found a
wonderful, fairly inexpensive source for various dried mushrooms from my
favorite Asian store. I just can't find your recipe
Would you please share it again? Thanks in advance!

How many years ago? It could have been any recipe I had found with a
search. But dried mushrooms can be used in any mushroom soup. The
soup I make most often that contains mushrooms is beef barley
mushroom... in fact I plan to make that next as I already did my pea
soup. This time I am going to use a 50/50 blend of barley and wild
rice. I never follow a recipe the same way twice, a recipe is just a
guide. This is the recipe I wrote up years ago, feel free to refer to
it and alter it however you like, that's what I do considering
available ingredients on my palete, the pot being my canvas.
