Well, with the return of cool weather, I thought I would post my 2 favorite soup recipes...
Potato Cheese Soup
5 c. potatoes (cubed)

Cover in water (not too much water) and boil.
In another pan:
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. pepper
1 t. powder mustard
1 t. Worcestershire sauce

Stir till thickens...
add 2 c. cheese (we like sharp OR mozzarella)
Stir until cheese melts then add to potatoes (with water), stir and mash with a potato masher to desired consistency.
