It feels good to cook....

I never cook.
I would love to cook more, but we never have the stuff to do it, since its not our house and all.
Anyway little Miss Holly House Wife over here, (me) decided she wanted to cook a home made meal!

I know shocker huh?

For Christmas my mom made me a recipe book of all her recipes. Its been super cold out and I have been craving my mom's cream of broccoli soup. Oh its so yummy!
With a little bit of this and a little bit of that, I made it. :D

Here is the recipe.

What you'll need:
1/2 package frozen broccoli
1 stick of butter

1/2 cup of flour
2 tsp. chicken boullion (in 2 cups boiling water)

1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 cups of Half-n-Half

You first put the frozen broccoli in either a food processor or blender and finely chop.
Then you put that on the stove (medium heat) and cook until tender.

Melt the butter ( don't burn it) and add the flour, to make a paste.

Boil the water and add the chicken bouillon.
Add the chicken stock to the butter/flour paste.
Add the broccoli.
Bring to a boil.

Then add the half and half and salt and pepper.
Put on low and simmer!

The longer it simmers the better it tastes!

Thats it!
Add some french bread and your ready for a meal everyone enjoys. :D

My husband eats so much.
I had to make a double batch just so I can be sure he is full and happy.
He loved it :D
