One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

I learned a trick from MARTHASTEWART.COM... she says that "sharp white cheddar" melts the best & doesn't turn grainy when melted. I have had problems with the consistency of this soup - it always tastes delicious but then gets all scary grainy once the cheese melts. well, what do you know! I used sharp white cheddar & it worked. also - make sure not too put too much Parmesan in!
delicious recipe, steph!
