The broccoli at the store was buy one get one free so I decided to make broccoli soup last night. All the other pictures were blurry so here is just one of the finished product. I steamed the broccoli with chicken stock and then when tender I pureed it with a little sour cream and grated cheddar cheese, adding more liquid until it was smooth. Added a little salt and pepper. Its yummy and good for this little bit more cold weather we are having. The bottom picture is my window boxes on my porch. It is a gorgeous day and the red geraniums with the flags blowing in the breeze really caught my eye. Hope it at least sunny where you are.

  1. This must be broccoli time, as it's abundant and on sale here in East Texas, too. I'm sure I'm not the first person who ever thought of this, but I peel the tough "rind" off the broccoli stalks, cut the peeled stalks into slices and freeze them. They are really a good and surprising addition to vegetable soup.
