Pals Cabin's Cream of Mushroom Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Oolala

Pals Cabin is an old restaurant in West Orange, NJ that is famous for this soup. I found the recipe in a cookbook called "Cooking for Love." I guessed the time since I haven't made this yet. Didn't want to lose it.

Oh So Good. I'm a N.J. transplant to N.C.. There's many things I miss about N.J., one of them being Pal's Cabin and their mushroom soup. I can't tell you how happy you made me when I found this receipe. It's easy to make, it's delicious, and it brings back so many good memories of going to Turtleback Zoo and then heading to Pal's Cabin. Thanks again.
