Soup season! It’s officially acceptable to have soup anytime. My middle child is more than happy with that, considering she asks for cream of broccoli soup about 3 times a month…even when it’s 80+ degrees outside. I definitely tend to make more broth based soups: chicken noodle, Italian wedding, lentil but sometimes a lovely cream based soup is just what you need to get you through those cold days.
With days growing shorter and shorter and the holiday season upon us, I feel like I have been running around like crazy day in and day out. Trying to get kids to where they need to be, manage school events, try to keep our house in some kind of working/neat order and of course get dinner on the table. Frankly, the days I aim for a blog post and make dinner in the morning, I give myself a nice big pat on the back. After completely cleaning out my fridges yesterday I realized that I needed a big ol’ grocery shopping trip and perhaps get a meal plan together this week? Maybe? Anyone else in that boat? A few stores later + unloading the cooking began.
Alessia, my middle child, sweet as pie has a ridiculous obsession with cream of broccoli soup. Someway, somehow it became her all-time favorite soup. It’s nothing fancy, pretty inexpensive to make and definitely fills you up. The best thing about this soup is that it takes only a few minutes to prepare and can be only one pot! Doesn’t that sound incredible? I don’t know about you, but a homemade delicious meal on a budget sounds pretty good to me. Between the normal holiday bustle + birthdays, December is a doozy! I know there are many variations to cream of broccoli but I hope you’ll give this one a try, simple roux base, milk, broth + broccoli is all you need for an amazing dinner tonight. As always, I love seeing your creations, be sure to tag me on Instagram @CosettesKitchen or post on my Facebook Page.
