Earls Uncle Arthur is quite the hunter. This week he brought us 2 pheasants for a dinner party we had on Thursday. I had never had pheasant before. Earl roasted it and it was good. We had some leftovers and made this soup. It is supposed to be pheasant and wild rice soup but we were out of wild rice and substituted plain white rice instead. The recipe calls for mushrooms and we had some dried morel mushrooms from this spring (Thanks again to Uncle Art!) so we threw some in.
All I can say is this is why God made pheasants. Oh yeah. This creamy filling soup was one of the best things I have ever eaten. You can find the recipe here. We also substituted a little white wine for the Sherry and half and half for the cream. Just so you know. Hot soup is perfect on a snowy, blustery day. We got 12 inches yesterday. It is still snowing now and I think we are having the rest of this with fresh crescent rolls for dinner:>) YuM!
