How was your Christmas? I hope you had a wonderful day and were able to enjoy lots of great food and family. We had a great day and enjoyed staying at home and relaxing. I love seeing the kids play with their new toys and having fun being together. The house is a wreck but for some reason I love it. The New Year will bring new resolutions and projects, but for the moment I am enjoying having kids home and being able to spend time with them while they are out of school. It’s sad Christmas is over, but I am sure next year will come around before we know it.A Christmas ham is our traditional meal of choice the night of Christmas, what is yours? If you have extra ham in your fridge this cheesy, ham soup is awesome! My friend gave me this recipe and I laughed out loud when I read that it had Cheez Wiz. I have never purchased this before but was surprisingly pleased when this soup was extremely smooth and gives the soup the perfect cheesy texture. This soup will warm the heart and soul of anyone on a cold, wintery day.Enjoy 🙂

Cut the carrots, celery, onions and potatoes into bite sized pieces. Place the vegetables into a large soup pot. Add the chicken broth to the pot. Bring the soup to a boil and cook until the potatoes are slightly tender. While the vegetables are cooking, in a seperate, smaller sauce pan, add the butter to the pan and heat it until it melts. Add the flour and whisk until the flour and butter are incorporated. Add a cup of the milk to the mixture and continue to whisk until it begins to thicken. When the mixture begins to thicken, pour the mixture into the soup pot with the vegetables and chicken broth. Add the remaining milk to the soup, the Cheese Whiz and the seasonings. Let the soup simmer on low heat until the soup begins to thicken and the vegetables are cooked through. Dice the ham and add to the soup. When the soup is nice and thick, serve soup warm. (If the soup is too thick, add a little more milk, or if it is too thin, you can add a little more flour combined in water and then add to the soup to thicken.)
