After someone recommended cheese soup & cheesy biscuits as a good meal (I can't remember who), I had been wanting to try a cheese soup! I found this recipe, and thought it sounded great. Aside from the cream cheese not melting well which may have been due to lack of patience), I thought it turned out pretty good.
Turns out, Nathan doesn't like cheese soups.
Oh well... a lesson learned. I won't be making this again, but maybe one of you can enjoy it! :)
