Recipe: Macaroni & Cheese Soup

It's finally under 100!!!  Fall has arrived.  It's sweater and boots time! Yeehaw! Just kidding BUT it really is time to chow down on some serious comfort food!  I don't know about you but I feel that there is nothing as comforting as a bowl of macaroni and cheese or a bowl of soup.  

Why not make both as one? I love being able to share this recipe for Macaroni & Cheese Soup.  It's really easy and you can even add chicken, ground turkey or ground beef to take it up an extra notch.
