We have admit it… the weather it is not the best at the moment. It was nice and sunny sunday but since then it is constantly raining. Perfect weather for some kind of comfort food. That is why when I saw chestnuts mushrooms in the great price I had bought them and prepare soup. I always thought it is a difficult one but its turn out to be incredibly easy. Kitchen was smell so nice and I also had some mushroom left so I could do rice with fried mushrooms- I could eat it every day 😉
