To go from 75 degree days (well some of them were 50s) to less than 10 degrees overnight was tough. We had even originally planned to spend a few extra days in Georgia or Tennessee because my son had a college interview he had to be online to attend from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. He needed reliable internet so we decided we needed to be at a hotel during that time. Instead of just staying somewhere along the way we decided to stay in Orlando for 2 extra days. No one really wanted to come home to the cold and snow.
What can help us warm up? Soup and hot bread.
Verdict: This soup was a group project. My son cut the potatoes, my daughter put it all together in the slow cooker and my wife served the soup and hot garlic bread. It made dinner super easy for everyone as no one had to do it all alone.
The garlic bread was a great addition to the meal as I love to dip in my soup. We added a side of cut veggies to complete the meal.
What is Velveeta Cheese? From Wikepedia: Velveeta is a brand name for a processed cheese product that tastes like an American cheese, with a softer and smoother texture than non-processed cheese. When melted, Velveeta keeps a fully integrated and evenly clump-free liquid texture. It is not real cheese but a processed cheese product. You can use regular sharp cheddar cheese or American cheese buy both may separate and not give you the smooth creamy texture of Velveeta.
