Winter Cheese Soup

Feeling the Chill in the air? -- Well actually, we are still very hot in CA but I like to pretend it's turning cold and get out our favorite Soup recipes. Enjoy this one,
we have been loving it for years.

Cheese Soup
In a Heavy Soup pot:
Melt 2 Sticks Butter
1 Cup Flour
stir to make a paste

Add in:
4 Cups Water
4 Cups Broth
begin stirring until thickened

Add in:
1 lb. Velveeta Cheese (cut into squares)
1 - 2 Cups diced carrots
1 - 2 Cups fresh broccoli
optional: 1 Cup diced potato's
note: vegetables need to be steamed before adding to soup
and vegetables can be any desired amount

Simmer on stove for 20 minutes

Serving tips, works well to cut recipe in half if serving for a smaller group. And, for something fun, try serving it in bread bowls or serve with french bread and a fresh bowl of grapes for a complete dinner.
