Cheesy Wild Rice Soup

This recipe a friend gave to me, which we really enjoy.

 It makes a lot, so it's great for a crowd. I usually make a batch on the stove, then transfer to a crock pot to keep warm. It thickens a bit more in the crock pot to a prefect consistency.

The soup freezes well, and I love to grab a container for my lunch in the morning. By noon it has thawed and I throw in in the microwave for a nice warm, filing meal!

Creamy, Cheesy Wild Rice Soup

3/4 c. wild rice, cooked
2 Tbsp. butter
1 qt. milk or half and half
2 c. water
