pastedGraphic_1.pngpastedGraphic_3.pngLife is starting to calm down for my family.  Still stressful but calming down none the less.  This weekend I spent cooking non-stop in my kitchen preparing for this upcoming week.  I am taking a road-trip to Oregon! Grants Pass or bust!  Since I will be gone for a week I needed to make sure that 1-my hubby would be fed; leftovers it is for him; and 2-y’all don’t miss out on anything from me!

With being on the road I needed to make sure that the things I made for Mr. Steve would be easy to reheat. With that of course soup came to mind!

Step 1

Gather all of your ingredients.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Whisk in the flour and cook until golden, 3 to 4 minutes, then gradually whisk in the half and half until smooth. Add the chicken broth, bay leaves and nutmeg, then season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, until thickened, about 20 minutes.

Step 4

Puree the ½ of the soup in a blender until smooth or use an Kitchenaid Hand Immersion BlenderpastedGraphic_1.png; return to the pot. Add the cheese to the soup and whisk over medium heat until melted. Enjoy!
