dinner tonight

What's for dinner? CHEESY BROCCOLI SOUP!  My own creation although there are probably many comparable soups out there this is what I came up with. It's easy and fast.

1 bag of frozen broccoli
1 jar of cheez whiz
1 box of dry chicken noodle soup
powdered milk

  1. Dump both envelopes of soup into your largish saucepan, add the whole bag of broccoli, add water to almost the top of the broccoli. I would put a little bit less water than what you see in the picture.
  2. Simmer until the broccoli is almost done; it should be bright green still. Lower heat to very low or off.
  3. Make a supersaturated powdered milk and water mixture: 1 cup lukewarm water to 1 cup powdered milk, mix together then add to the soup. 
  4. Add the Cheeze Whiz; stir and let sit then stir until the cheese is incorporated.
  5. Serve
Andrew had 3 bowls full the last time I fixed this; he even ate the non-flower pieces of broccoli!

p.s. I was surprised when 'largish' didn't come up as mispelled. It is a real word and even means what I meant it to mean...'somewhat large or biggish.'
