Cream of Broccoli Soup

Well here's another soup. For some reason my curmudgeon just can't get enough soup. Chicken noodle, cream of mushroom, cream of chicken. ... Loves the asparagus and the zucchini soup.

The nice thing about soup is that you can put the whole meal in one bowl Serve with some chips, bread or apple sauce, and it's a full meal.

It's always nice when when he chops the vegetables.
