Fall and winter have always been "soup time" for me. That's when I drag out all the old recipes or try new ones. This one is new for me, but not a new dish by any means. It's another favorite from the L.S. Ayre's Tea Room (1905-1990).

  2. Add soda, vegetables, seasonings and cheese. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and thoroughly blended in. Just before serving, add the chopped parsley. Serve hot with a crusty garlic bread.
