Lou's Cheese Soup

When Lou and I first married, she actually did some of the cooking. Slowly over the years, it seems I’ve literally pushed her out of the kitchen even though she’s actually a pretty good cook. The problem with Lou’s cooking is that she’s messy. She likes to spread out and use a lot of pots. It’s really not her fault. Her mother was the same way. I like to clean as I go; use a pot, wash a pot. This soup was one of our favorites when we first married. Everyone loves it, and it goes perfectly with a crispy grilled sandwich on a cold day. Your Friday Night Porch Party will love it!.
