Recipe Swap - Broccoli-cheese Soup




Hello! In leu of the "rainy day" weather, this week's recipe swap is our copykat recipe for
"Broccoli-Cheese Soup"
T.G.I. Friday's style!
This is such a "comfort" soup - warm and tasty! Sided up with a sandwich - the perfect meal on a rainy day! Hope you are having a great week! It's been a busy one here!


Broccoli-Cheese Soup
4 cups water
2 cups potato - peeled & diced
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 tsp. garlic; minced
1/2 cup minced onion
2 10 oz. package; chopped broccoli; frozen
2 cans Cream of Chicken soup
1 lb. Velveeta; cubed

Combine the water, potato, bouillon cubes, onion, garlic and broccoli in a large pan. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-18 minutes, or until the potato and broccoli are tender. Add the canned soups and the cheese, stirring until the cheese is melted and smooth. Simmer for 10-12 minutes for the soup to thicken. Serve warm!

Compare this recipe to the T.G.I. Friday's version and let us know! Either way - you're sure to enjoy this "comfort" soup!

Entered my "teapot notepad purse" in a creative contest... Saw this teapot as a "girlie" manicure set at one of our local boutiques and just had to try it as a notepad holder. I enter this contest here! Will let you know if I get screen time - and need your votes and comments for the contest. The one that I sent Angie is made in Stampin Up's chocolate chip and "Sending Love" speciality paper; it holds a 3x3 sticky pad. If you would like this pattern - I've got a rough draft
for the cardstock and another pattern for the designer paper - let me know and I'll send it to you! It makes a quick & cute gift to give! Who doesn't need a notepad... LOL!

Stay positive and have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

I think this is a great contest and hope you win. I will try to vote for you (remind me). But is this her "lazy" way of getting a bunch of swaps to take with her. Make sure you put your name on it.
