That’s what happened to me last weekend!  I was SO hungry for a yummy, cheesy delicious soup!  The problem?  Well, others in my family refuse to eat soup when the weather is warm.  And so I decided to put a soup together, but on a smaller scale than what I would usually fix for my family.   And, as a result of my labor, Cheesy Chicken Veggie Soup was created!  It’s rich, it’s creamy, it’s full of veggies and yummy chicken, and in my opinion, almost perfect for warmer weather……(at least for me)!  What’s not to like? LOL
