Broccoli and Cheese Soup
This is another recipe I got from a Southern Living magazine. Had to share this because we all need a good soup during this cold winter season.
I like trying new soup recipes, but I tend to stray back to the classic ones when it comes time to cook up something.
If you don't have a lot of time to spare in the kitchen, this recipe is quick and easy.

- In the same saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Sprinkle with flour; stir until blended.
