"Journalistic Intentions - October Entry 8 - Beer Cheese Soup

         I'm the kind of girl that likes to save the best for last. These prompts were no exception. I mean, what could be better than cheese and beer? I don't get to drink like I used to, but I still appreciate a good brew when one presents itself, and I thoroughly enjoy cooking with beer. Adding beer to many different dishes brings a new dimension to the flavor profile of the food - and it also has the ability to tenderize any meat that you are cooking in it. Win-win in my opinion. Now, beer cheese soup, whoever first thought of this concoction was a culinary genius. Nothing sounds better and more warming on a cool Fall day than a thick beer cheese soup. Now, I think creating this delightful soup myself would be a trial and error process until I found the right combination of cheeses and beer. There are just so many of both out there that you could potentially have a different flavored beer cheese soup each day for quite a while. (My mind is not thinking mathematically today so this is the closest estimate I can give you right now). Let's just say there are tons of possible combinations. I'd probably start off with a nice extra sharp cheddar and see how it tasted when paired with a nut brown ale or maybe even a stout. But, I think the stout would be better suited for combining with a blend of gouda and sharp cheddar. Like I said, the possibilities are almost endless. Some combinations likely wouldn't turn out well at all, but others could end up being your new favorite soup. And why not add things other than the spices, like maybe some rice or potato chunks to thicken it up a bit more... Well, now I've gone and done it; I have made myself hungry - again. So, I'm off to scour my fridge for something that tickles my fancy because I'm feeling too lazy to actually cook anything right now. But beer cheese soup is definitely something I'm going to have to try to cook for myself.
