~Good Soup~

 “Good soup is one of the prime ingredients of good living. For soup can do more to lift the spirits and stimulate the appetite than any other dish.” 
–Lois P. De Gouy

We had this soup for Supper this past week. Oh boy, was it good!

Cheddar and Potato Soup
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 4 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1/4 C. Flour
  • 1 tsp. Dry Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. Cayenne (This isn’t enough to be spicy, just adds some flavor.)
  • 4 C. Chicken Broth
  • 1 1/2 C. Carrots, diced
  • 1 1/2 C. Potatoes, diced
  • 2 C. Milk or Half-and-Half
  • 3 C. Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • Salt to taste
1) Sauté the onion in butter. Add flour, mustard, and cayenne; stir for 3 minutes.

2) Add broth, carrots, and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

3) Add milk or cream, and cheese; cook for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Salt to taste.

Yield: About 6 Servings.

Recipe from MaryJane’sFarm Magazine, Dec-Jan 2011 Issue.


  1. Shalom Kally!

    The recipe sounds better than the one I use so next time I make a batch of Potatoe soup it's this recipe I'll be using :-)

    I was reading your profile, so you were a Bright Lights Leader? We are using Bright LIghts at home as part of our Tea Time Thurs Curr.

    My girls also have a Torah Keeping Maiden Club via blogspot. Please feel free to check it out.

    It's good to come across your sight I'll be back to visit!

    HalleluYah, Praise to the King!!

  2. Thanks for your comment, YahKeena! I greatly appreciate the interest you have expressed for my blog!

    Yes, I have been a Bright Lights leader. I am currently not teaching or part of a group because our family has been in the process of moving, among other things, for the past several months.

    I went to your girls' site, and I think that I have been there before. If I remember correctly, I also left a comment. :-) It is a neat website. They must have a lot of fun in their activities! The recipes look wonderful!
