HOW TO: broccoli cheddar soup& Chanel Glasses


Today I was thinking...
What is something I have NEVER posted to my blog before?
& it came to me..
MY GLASSES!!
Although I do not wear glasses in my photos,
I wear my glasses everyday!
They are a bit more convenient for me at the moment~

They are Chanel glasses! They are a silver/gun metal color!
I got this color because they were a little less flashy then the
silver& black version of these glasses ^.^

I ventured out into the snow for all these pictures :3
There were light snowflakes drifting around~~
You can see some in my hair ~!

Ha ha... I look like a *complete* nerd in glasses 8D


Snow always looks so beautiful in pictures..
Snow is something that *many* people tell me
they are jealous I can see!!
But let me tell you, pictures and real life experience
are nothing a like!!
I find snow to be completely horrible!!
It's freezing, sends chills to your bones,
gets your clothes damp and icy, the cold winter breeze
sends a pain through your eyes that makes you believe
they are going to fall out of your sockets...
Ahhhh.....!!






HOW TO make broccoli cheddar soup!!


I hear many people say constantly, "I can't cook!"
Honestly, I think everyone can do this~~
It's just a matter of reading directions and following them precisely~~
Let's cook OK guys!! You can do it ^.^



INGREDIENTS LIST:
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups cream
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • head of broccoli
  • 1 cup of carrot (i forgot to show it in the picture!)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (more or less to your taste)
  • 8 oz grated sharp cheddar

Before you start cooking you must prepare all your veggies!

-Cut the carrots julienne style. This means thin strips~
( plz google image if not sure)
-cut the broccoli as you would for stir fry
-cut the onions as pictured below~


-First saute the onion in the tbs of butter, set it aside in a bowl for later

-Make what is called a "roux" by adding the melted butter and
flour with a wisk on medium for 3-5 mins. (i didn't show a picture of this!)

-Next add your cream, chicken stock, broccoli, carrots, and onions!!
It should look like the picture above~~

-Cover and cook on low for about 20 mins until the veggies are cooked ^.^


-In the next step use a hand blender to puree the soup into a thick mixture!
You can make it chunky or smooth depending on how you like it~
-If you do not have a hand blender pour your soup into a regular blender and puree!



-Last step is to add the cheese!

-Stir it in with the soup until completely melted and blended!

-Add nutmeg to your taste!! This gives the soup the final touch~~


Voila~~~ We are done !!
Time to go enjoy your soup ^.^




Please Enjoy& Be Well!!
With love, Nana*♥
