I just HAD to monkey with this! Sorry, it's what I do. I subbed one cup of chicken stock with sherry and added a healthy dose of dried thyme. I was hoping to use up some leeks and mushrooms on their last leg, and then freeze it. So I've not yet added the cream; I'll do that when I thaw and reheat. This smells wonderful, and was very easy to make. I'll let you know how it thaws / tastes once I get there. Thanks, Abby Girl!
