your recipe sounds yummy. Can't wait for weather to cool down enough that I can brew  up a cauldron of the stuff.

When I make my FO soup, I add a couple of glugs (that's the way I cook) of sherry. The broth is so rich and hardy. Also, try brie sometime, as a change from swiss or mozzerella.

Bon Apetit'
