If You Like McAllister's Broccoli & Cheese Soup...

....you'll want to try this recipe. I can't claim it as my own...I got it from Kellie Raspberry's website maybe 2 years ago. I've never tried it until yesterday (my pregnancy has gotten me craving soups of all kinds!.....but not "from the can" kind!), and I can say it was super easy and really good. (One note...if you don't want a ton leftover to freeze or give away, then half the recipe and it'll probably make 4-6 servings.)

The Players

It makes a TON!

Recipe:
1/2 cup butter
1 med. onion chopped
4 cans of swanson chicken broth with garlic
2 16 oz. bags of cut broccoli
1 32 oz. block of velveeta, cubed
1 cup milk
2/3 cup corn starch

Saute butter & onion. Add broth & broccoli and simmer until tender. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add milk. In a separate bowl, mix corn starch with enough water until it becomes a liquid, then add it to soup mixture. It should thicken instantly. Salt & pepper to taste.

On another note, this has been a pretty busy week for us.....lots of summer stuff going on. Next week, I think we're headed to Six Flags (no rides for me though, just eating alot of their fun stuff!). I'm trying to make the most of these last 3 weeks of "freedom" before school begins! It's amazing how fast summer goes when you're an adult.......remember it used to take forever when we were kids??

Bible Journey: Genesis 3:24-Gen 5:32
One quick note on how unbelievable to me it is that Cain, whose parents were Adam & Eve mind you, could have the audacity to talk to God in such a way as he did. "...Am I my brother's keeper?" he sarcastically said when asked by God where Abel was.....after he had murdered him. Wow...........

I've been craving soup too - that's one of the few things I have been able to eat.

That soup looks yummy, but it makes me sweat just looking at it!!! It's too hot for soup in the Thiel household, but I'll definitely keep this recipe for when the cooler weather arrives. Hopefully that will be sooner than later!!!

P.S. I'm still waiting for one of those tummy shots to be posted!!! ; )

more important than image. Some programs allow a

People talk themselves out of exercising so easily, and the
opposite can be so easy. Then you'll have no trouble motivating yourself to do it. Remember; there is a difference between a fattening diet and a healthy diet.
