Beer & Cheese Make A Perfect Cold Remedy
Whether it's cold and windy or you're just home with the flu, sometimes the best antidote is a nice hot bowl of soup. But instead of chicken, why not try some creamy cheese and vegetables?
It's December and that means only one thing. No, not the holidays. It means colds and coughs have hit the Richmond household. Between my nose running and my son's hacking cough keeping us up all night, no one's in a very good mood. I don't know about you, but when I'm not in a good mood, the last thing I want to do is cook... unless it's cookies or cake.
But sometimes cooking helps turn that frown upside down, especially when I'm making a big pot of hot soup to help coat the throat and chase those nasty germs away. While my first choice is usually chicken soup with matzo balls, a thick, rich creamy soup runs a very close second. So when I saw this recipe from Betty Crocker for a soup that not only called for several cups of shredded cheddar cheese but also beer, I knew it would be the perfect antidote to what ails me and the rest of the family. I mean, when doesn't a little beer and cheese put a smile on your face? It always seems to put a smile on mine.
