Broccoli Cheese Soup to warm up a cold winter day

BroccolicheddarYes I decided to make soup. Broccoli cheese soup to be exact. I had bought a hand blender this past week and wanted to try it out today so I found a pretty low-fat recipe for broccoli cheese soup and went to work. It actually came out pretty yummy I have to say and I am happy with the results. It tasted a lot "fresher" than some of the broccoli cheese soups I have had from cans or in chain restaurants. I guess the difference is that I know exactly what I put into it which was pretty much just broccoli, an onion, 2 garlic cloves, shredded cheddar cheese, milk, chicken broth and some salt/pepper/dash of hot sauce to taste.

Not too much else new really. This week wasn't too hectic, just the usual work stuff I suppose. Was really short-handed on Friday but we got through it like we always do.
The most exciting news I have is that we booked our flights to Hamburg for April -- yay :) We leave on Monday, April 21 and come back on Tuesday, April 29. We are also planning on spending the weekend after my friend's wedding in Copenhagen which will be exciting.

Mail update. Since my last update letters have gone out to: Steff/ME, Celia/MA and Michelle/Canada. Tomorrow letters are going out to: Lotte/Denmark and Charles/TN. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Barbara/Austria and Tiffany/OK.

Your soup sounds good. I make homemade soup usually about 2 times a week. It's certainly healthier than what you can get in a can. I haven't made a broccoli soup in a long time. I think that's next on my list.

Thanks for reminding me.
