      this was very tasty, my family loved it. Smooth creamy sauce with the biscuits that melted in your mouth. It was a long process but well worth it. I didn't add the mushrooms in the stock pot I sauted them separate with a little olive oil and added later. Also I added a little more fluid than called for since I live in a dry climate, I didn't want it to be dry. Turned out great I will make this again.
