Introducing. . .Pierre

At our house one thing the entire cast of characters dishes out daily is sarcasm/jokes. One of the adult favorites to dish is not giving straight answers when asked, "What are you making/cooking?" Here is the general flow of that conversation.
Child - What are you making?
Adult - Food.
C - What kind of food?
A - The kind you eat.
C - What kind of food you eat?
A - Delicious food.
This will continue on usually until the child gives up. Well last night here is the exchange.
Moo - What's for dinner?
Me - Soup. (I wasn't feeling the sarcasm.)
Moo - Okay.
Later on while we were eating. . .
Moo - So, the soup doesn't have a name?
PE - Yeah, it's Pierre. (He was full of it last night.)
So for the rest of the evening, the soup was referred to as Pierre. The soups real name. . . Cheesy Potato Soup. I served the soup with Brown & Serve Rolls. Those have turned out to be so convenient and delicious I will definitely be keeping my freezer stocked with them or some variation.

Potato Cheese Soup aka Pierre
from Sparky
Print Recipe

3 1/2 cups chicken broth
4 potatoes, cubed
2 carrots, shredded
1 onion, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup flour
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Heat the broth to boiling. Add the potatoes, carrots, onion, and garlic. Return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Combine milk, flour, and pepper. Add to vegetables. Heat to boiling and cook until it starts to thicken. Add cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Serve with additional shredded cheese if desired.

++Truth be told, when we made meatloaf I shredded way too many vegetables so we just used what was left from that--it worked out great.
