One of my favorite childhood memories is of my Aunt Claire serving up hearty bowlfuls of her famous cheesy soup. She would pair it with a slice of warm buttered bread for a downhome lunch. It’s become a tradition to include it as part of our family’s Christmas buffet.

Velveta was way to over powering. Olives didn't taste good with the cheese.
