HELLO, MY LOVELIES! HAPPY SUNDAY!

Goodness gracious, people, it is freeeeeezing out there! My eyelashes have icicles on ’em!!

I dunno where you live, but here, around these parts, it is, like, 99 below 0.

No, I’m not in Alaska. I’m talking about the Midwest. Indiana, to be exact.

Brrrrrr! I’m ready to wrap myself up with a cashmere scarf, large blanket, and a bowl of this AMAZING Cream of Broccoli and Potato Soup! Followed up by a marathon of The Real Housewives of Wherever, curled up near the fireplace…

Always a dreamer…

Aaaanywaaaays…

You know how we all love that one Broccoli Cheese Soup? The Panera one?! Yes, that one! Okay, so. This soup is just as good, sans cheese. NO cheese! That means we’re kinda saving on some calories! But not on carbs – we’re using potatoes here, after all, but, it doesn’t matter because me thinks potatoes are always better than cheddar cheese. Oui? Healthy, warm, and cozy all in one bowl… It can be done!

This soup is so simple and quick – if you have all the ingredients on hand, I suggest you hit the print button down there and make it for tonight’s din din. The fam will thank you.

  1. Kate,
    This looks terrific–perfect for a cold day! I’m still waiting on my snow. I was promised some snow and thus far it has not materialized. However, we’ll have a healthy layer of ice once all this rain freezes. Woot.
    However the soup! Yes, please!
