We talked a bit ago about how I have been making meals for John's Grandmother. This week I brought her this Crock Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup and she loved it.
I am trying to work in veggies as much as I can and soups that she will love. This soup just seems perfect for Fall! Hot, cheesy, yummy goodness that is easy to make.
One thing about this soup is your house does smell a bit like broccoli while it is cooking. Not a big deal if you really like broccoli but just something to be aware of. I walked back in the house after running to the store and the smell hit me as soon as I opened the door. I had to laugh that our house smelled like broccoli and pumpkin since I was baking all day when I made this. It was an interesting scent combination but the recipes turned out amazing.
