Beer Cheese Soup
The first day of October calls for a bowl of hearty Beer Cheese Soup regardless of the weather. We are drawn to Feasting on Art's recipe because it includes a recipe for savory cheesy mustard croutons. While everyone else is out getting there Oktoberfest on we'll be getting drunk on soup. (pretty sure you would have to eat a lot of this soup to catch a buzz, but we can try!)
