I just had a very nice, comforting bowl of my Aunt Jean's Broccoli Cheese Soup.
I had made a big batch of this soup last week and put lots of pint containers in the freezer. Tonight I took advantage of that earlier industry.
Here is the recipe:
AUNT JEAN'S BROCCOLI CHEESE SOUP
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter
7 chicken bouillon cubes
7 cups water
1 -10 ounce package fine egg noodles
1 bundle broccoli, chopped
7 cups milk
1 pound Velveeta, cut into 1 inch squares
Saute onion in butter in large stock pot.
Add 7 chicken bouillon cubes and 7 cups water.
Add noodles and broccoli. Cook over medium heat
until vegetables are tender.
Reduce heat to low. Add 7 cups milk and Velveeta.
Cook just until cheese is melted.
Do not allow to boil after adding milk and Velveeta.
I'm not sure exactly how much this makes, but a lot. As I said, it freezes really well and is a blessing when you don't want to have to cook.
Mr. Muddling has a morbid dislike for broccoli, but will eat it in this soup IF I put the broccoli through the food processor until there is no part of it recognizable as broccoli. I know. We do what we must to get along.
My reason for needing a little comfort? I decided to empty rain water that had collected in the sink we replaced in the kitchen. I have it outside on the side of the house, sort of leaning. I have plans for it. But since mosquitoes are a problem here, it's a real good idea not to have standing water. So I emptied it. It slipped out of my hand and hit my foot. I'm sure it's not broken, but it sure is swollen and turning a lovely shade of purple. Not one of my finer moments.
Going now to elevate and ice again.
Hope your day is going much, much better!
Hugs and kisses,
