Then I added about 4 cups of chicken broth and let that come to a boil. I added some fresh garlic and some other spices for taste. Then I took a flour and milk mixture (about 1/2 cup of flour and 3 cups of milk) and added it to the pot. I brought that to a boil and got it to thicken. Then I took it off the stove and added about 1 1/2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. This thickened it up a bit more which I knew was going to happen. Then after all that I served the soup.
We had it with my sister's rolls. My girls had seconds, and kristen said to me, "Mom I am so so happy, do you know why? it's because I love this soup." My brother came over to help me with something too and I gave him a bowl and he really liked it too, and he said that he does not really like soup. So there you go. It really was yummy and I even made enough to freeze some.
