It's still winter

Well,the 60 degree days we had were just a little tease for spring because now we're freezing! It's like 18 here right now!
I got this recipe in my e-mail this morning from
it sounds soooo good.I have been obsessed with soup lately mainly because it's generally easy,fast and not high in fat or calories.This recipe could even be tweaked a bit to make it more WW (weight watchers)friendly.
Is there anything better on a freezing cold day than soup,especially with cheese!!!
I think not.

Cheddar Cheese Soup~~
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 12-oz. cans evaporated milk
1 c. beer or chicken broth
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. dry mustard
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
8-oz. pkg. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Garnish: additional shredded cheese, sliced green onion

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, stirring constantly until bubbly. Add evaporated milk; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; stir in beer or broth, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Simmer for 10 minutes; stir in cheese until melted. Garnish as desired. Makes 4 servings.

Here is a little winter poem my 8 yr old daughter wrote,thought it was appropriate

~I feel a chill
Beside the windmill

Snow falls all around
right onto the ground

I threw a snowball
right when I fall
