From Glendia's Kitchen - Hearty Chicken Cheese Soup

As we all very well know, work on the farm doesn’t stop in the winter time. From milking, feeding and taking care of animals, to hauling grain or repairing equipment, there is plenty of work to do both inside and outside…even in those frigid temperatures.

By the time you finally return to the house, I bet you’re ready for a nice hot meal to help you warm up. And nothing beats that cold winter chill better than a steaming hot bowl of soup.

The Whole World Needs A Kitchen

When you come from a farm family of 12 aunts and uncles and 30 first cousins (that’s just my Dad’s side), there are bound to be a lot of family gatherings. Whether it was Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter or even just a Sunday after church, some of my earliest memories revolve around the kitchen on my grandma and grandpa’s dairy farm. It was there that I learned to play euchre, scrabble (my grandma was a pro), and how to make some of my all-time favorite foods.
