I thought I'd share the soup recipe that I made tonight. It was yummy!
Creamy Cheddar Soup
2/3 cup shredded carrots
2/3 cups thinly sliced celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
4 cups milk
1 tsp. salt
dash of white pepper
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup cubed cooked ham
Saute carrot, celery and onion in butter in a stockpot until tender.
Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute,
stirring constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat,
stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly.
Add salt and pepper; stir well. Add cheese and ham, stirring until
cheese melts. Serve immediately. Makes 6 cups.
