Broccoli Cheese Soup!
If you know my hubby Mike, you know that he does not accept soup as a main course meal. When we were first married, over 11 years ago, I made soup all the time. I LOVE soup! I could eat if for every meal. After a few months, Mike finally got the nerve up to tell me that he didn’t think soup should be a main meal! “It’s an appetizer!”
He said. So, after that explosion of opinion. I told him…”Too dang bad!” And so, after much compromise. We settled on a soup that he really enjoys, so I can have my soup and eat it too! Broccoli and Cheese Soup; of course, it’s his mother’s recipe, so he really enjoys it, and so do our kids! Mike actually whipped up a batch of this cheesy goodness a couple weeks ago.
Pregnancy in the first trimester is not too much fun for me, so cooking has definitely taken a backseat. I’m lucky that Mike picks up the slack!
