I was inspired by the recent thread about Cream of Broccoli Soup, and it's been a long time since I made it. I've never really used a recipe but it turned out great with the addition of crisp fried bacon. Everything goes better with bacon... Instead of using a roux, I used instant potato flakes to thicken it, and I had another chance to use my stick blender in the pot. Love that gadget!

I've made mine the same way, Kayelle, including the instant potato flakes. Turns out great, and I love my boat motor too!

We've been alternating local restaurant fare (Sunday's shrimp po'boy and fried grouper) with free food via credit cashback bonus restaurant gift cards (Saturday was steaks at Texas Roadhouse). Today we had the best of both - free seafood! We ate at Bahama Breeze (back home we're 70 miles away from the nearest one - fuggetaboutit); Himself had seafood paella and I had Key West shrimp with cheesy grits and haricot vert. We each brought about half "home" since we had apps (chicken empanadas and conch fritters) and drinks before dinner. A food foto. Sorry for the lighting but all they had was one small spotlight above the center of the table.
