The broccoli was bright green and crisp-tender. Then added some AP flour to make a roux, being careful not to brown it and stirred in the stock. (I had about a quart of stock) (of course I didn't measure a thing) Then I stirred in the cheddar cheese, once melted through I added 1/2 and 1/2 and brought it back up to temp. Again, it was fantastic and the broccoli bits were still crisp-tender. Also kosher salt and fresh grind pepper made an appearance at some point, most likely when I was sauteeing.

Yes, I tend to cook "off-the-cuff."
Paula Deen made a portabella mushroom soup in the same way.

I can't wait to try your soup recipe........ and Paula's (I LOVE homemade cream of mushroom soup!)

I love cream of mushroom soup, too! I make all my soups from scratch, there isn't much I haven't turned into soup at one time or another. When I worked in the last bakery there was a lunch counter and I made all the soups from scratch, once I proved to the owner they were better and more cost effective than the frozen soups. I love soups, stews and chilis.

Today is turkey club sandwiches... lettuce, tomato and bacon.
My problem is DH's inability to eat anything that has to be chewed. He can eat most anything as long as it's almost mush. I cook for myself and then take his out and continue cooking it until everything is nice and tender. For my birthday dinner I had rib steak and he had fish, because he couldn't eat anything else on the menu. It odesn't give me much leeway for making meals that are texture perfect for company.
