Broccoli Cheese Soup

3 (10 oz.) packages frozen chopped broccoli
3 (14.5 oz.) cans chicken broth
6 T. butter
1 onion, chopped
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. milk
1 1/2 lb. processed cheese food (eg. Velveeta), cubed
1 pinch ground white pepper


1. In a large pot over medium heat, simmer the broccoli in the chicken broth for 15 minutes. In a separate skillet over medium heat, melt the butter, add the onions, and saute for 5 minutes, or to desired tenderness.

2. Add the flour to the onions and stir well, forming a pasty substance. Gradually add the milk and stir until thick. Add this mixture to the broccoli mixture in the pot and stir well. Then add the cheese, stirring until melted. Finally, add the pepper. (Be careful not to let the soup boil, or the cheese will break down.)

Note: For this soup, Jon changed the cheese a bit. He used a pound of Velveeta and made the rest up with shredded mozzarella cheese. Also, he used regular black pepper.

Jill was watching TV yesterday, and something she saw made her want to eat flower seeds (I think one of the characters ate them or something). She was very upset when I told her we didn't have any, so I guess we'll be buying some sunflower seeds this Thursday. :P

Also, I've been craving quesadillas, so I'll probably pick some stuff up to make them. Yummy-yum!

Ginny's on vacation right now, so the four of us went to church together. I was SO proud of my girls! They were really good and quiet. Now I'm not so nervous to take them by myself.

I discovered that I like pineapple. All my life I've eaten it and never really been fond of it. But earlier this week, Jon's boss, Micheal, brought a bunch of food for a day long meeting, and one of those things was a fruit tray with honeydew melon, cantelope, and pineapple. I've never had pineapple like that--sweet and soft and deee-licious!

Anyway, that's all. Bye!
