I have been breaking the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night and there is a definite payoff. Take a look at this sunrise.
The clouds have been most unusual the past couple of weeks, don't you think?
Yesterday, I made a pot of cream of broccoli soup with broccoli from my own garden. Even hubby was impressed.
If you haven't grown broccoli, it is the easiest veggie I've found so far. Put it in the ground, water it, and up comes a beautiful head of broccoli. However, the draw back is only one head per plant. It would pay to grow from seed which I plan to do next year.
I combined a couple of recipes from Cooks.com. I like this site because it contains hundreds, perhaps thousands, of recipes and you do not have to register to get a recipe.
Here's the recipe.
1 onion, chopped
2 heads of broccoli
2 cans of chicken broth
3 T butter
3 T flour
2 c milk
Cheese to taste
Lightly saute onion in butter, add broth and broccoli, cook until broccoli is soft. Puree the mixture and add to the sauce.
Sauce: Melt butter, mix in flour, add milk, salt, pepper, bring to a slow, slight boil until the mixture thickens. Add the pureed broccoli and cheese to taste.
Serve with crusty French baguette and a salad.
Add a cup of Pomegranate Green Tea for a drink and you are set.
Isn't this a lovely color?
Until next time, God bless.
