Cheese Soup

Pastor Simonsen’s wife, Joan, served this in their home during a progressive supper, years and years ago.  It’s still the best cheese soup I’ve ever tasted.

1/2 c. carrots

1/2 c. celery

1/4 c. onion

Finely chop all three; sauté in 1/2 stick margarine (NO!  Use butter!) until transparent.

Stir in:

1/3 c. flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Salt and pepper to taste (Use approx. 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper)

Slowly add:

1 qt. milk

1 qt. chicken broth

Add 1 pound of sliced Velveeta.  Heat until hot; do not boil as it can curdle.

Makes 2 quarts.

Frozen Punch

Gloria Thiele taught me how to lead Sunday School openings and how to make the best frozen punch in the whole wide world!

4 c. boiling water

4 small or 2 large pkg. Jell-O (choose your flavor), dissolved

16 oz. lemon juice

2 (46 oz.) cans pineapple juice

8 large bottles ginger-ale

Combine 4 cups sugar and 4 cups water; bring to boil.  add to dissolved Jell-O.  Set aside to cool, then add lemon juice and pineapple juice.  Freeze in suitable containers.  To serve, place under hot water to loosen.  Put frozen punch in punch bowl; add 2 large bottles ginger-ale (add more ginger-ale as needed until slush is gone.)  Serves 100.
