I have a cheap soup recipe for you too.

Harvest Time Soup

1 1/2 cups water
1 cup cubed potatoes
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
3/4 lb. process cheese spread, cubed
1 cup ham, cubed

Bring water, potatoes, carrots and celery to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer till vegetables are tender.

Add cheese and ham; cook, stirring till cheese is melted.

This makes about 4 servings, but it could easily be cut in half or

Oh that sounds yummy too Great to make with leftover ham!! Do you add any seasoning? Maybe we would throw a different Mrs Dash in there too!

Great recipe! I love the Mrs Dash seasonings! I think I may try this recipe with noodles instead of rice since my crew isn't big on rice.
