Mike's French Onion & Mushroom Soup

Since the tummy flu is going around here in Albuquerque like mad – I charged my 7 year old students to make a soup without meat. Sadly, all 4 sick students refused to touch it initially. Anyway, this was their thirty minute soup kitchen adventure! This really was tasty students! And, your fellow students seriously adored it! Piping hot to ease their tummies, salty to prompt them to drink and breads to soak up all of those acids in their stomachs! Excelent work!
