Well, at least I’m one step closer to those red/white blocks to be sent to Quilts for Leukemia. I got on Quilter’s Cache last night and picked out the 3 blocks I’m going to sew.
I worked late, but it was raining so Ransom’s walk was cancelled. I cooked supper, and studied Calculus to work with Chelsey on homework. It’s been a long time since I worked with a Math book. Man, am I rusty.
I talked with Eric. He’s coming home this weekend. It’s been 3 weeks since He’s been home. I think he’s a little homesick, but I’m missing him, so it’s his call. He’s made it 2 weeks and now 3 weeks between visits, maybe by the time bad weather sets in, he’ll be set for the long haul.
The low tonight is thirty five degrees predicted. Looks like summer is over.
Clare had asked a couple of days ago about my Broccoli Soup recipe. This one turn out real well, so I thought I’d share it.
Crème Of Broccoli Soup with Cheese
6 cups Water
10 oz fresh or frozen broccoli
¾ cup finely chopped onion
1 teas salt
1 teas pepper
1 teas garlic powder
12 oz Velveeta cheese, shredded (pasteurized cheese)
1 pint Half and Half
¼ cup butter
1/3 cup flour
½ cup cold water
Bring 6 cups of water to boil; add broccoli and onion and boil 10 minutes. Add seasonings and cheese; stir till it melts. Add half and half and butter; stir and heat to boiling. Slowly add ½ cup water to flour in separate cup and stir till smooth. Slowly add to hot mixture. Cook and stir until soup is the consistency of heavy crème. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
