image of cream of mushroom soup

I made this amazing cream of mushroom soup the other day and omggggggg it was so tasty! I was eating it for days. I am, as y'all know, terrible at recipes, because I just cook with my palate, but here's my best attempt at a recipe, haha.

1.5 cups of chopped white button mushrooms
1 diced white onion
2 slices of crumbled cooked bacon
1 tablespoon of thyme
2 tablespoons of parsley
2 cups of unsalted chicken stock
1 cup of heavy cream
2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper

In a big pot or Dutch oven, cook the onions and mushrooms in olive oil and some salt and pepper, just until the onions go translucent and the mushrooms begin to cast off that amazing nutty aroma. Let cool. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir well, bring to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let rest for 4 minutes, then serve with crusty buttered bread!

(Honestly I probably put like 4 tablespoons of parsley in there, lol, but I love the stuff!)
