Broccoli Cheese Soup

I will be running all over the place today...gotta go to the bank, pay the utility bill, then have to drive an hour each way to take my son to a weekend birthday party.

Guess what? We found the cords to our digital camera! Yea! Now I will be able to post some pictures---finally.

We just love Broccoli Cheese Soup and thought I would share this easy recipe with you.
