It's starting to get chilly here in Houston Tx, (never thought that I would say that! Being a Nebraskan Girl) So I was browsing the food magazines at the check out line and saw pictures of soups! Thought to myself! I have 3lb of a cheese block that needs to be used up before it goes bad, and some broccoli in the freezer...hmmmm Broccoli and cheese soup!!!!! Yum !!! Needless to say it was a great hit at our house! And the boys loved it !! And I made a turkey sandwich with alfalfa sprouts and tomatoes and dipped it into our soups, so so good :) Enjoy !!!
