Homemade Cream Soup Base

I have an injury…from a tambourine. You know when you weekend ends with an injury from a musical instrument…it was definitely a good weekend. I haven’t danced for 3 hours consecutively in a very long time…good thing it was a long weekend—I had plenty of couch time too…I hope you had a great Labor day weekend. Looks like we are all back in the swing of things….always hard to get back to routine—but soon crisp fall days will be here, and I cannot wait! Puppy Chloe comes home on Friday…we are all very excited for this new addition to our family:)

Wanted to share with you a great substitute for canned cream of _____ soup base. This recipe can be changed up by adding in different spices. I use this for my chicken pot pie recipe and it is thick and creamy..perfect for your casseroles that call for the canned version. This recipe makes 2 cans worth….
