Thick and Creamy Broccoli Potato Soup

Well although its a lovely rainy day here, some of our friends are buried under several feet of snow! In honor of them I am posting one of my favorite cold weather soups. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do! It is enough for a large group or to get you through a long weekend. If you don't have a large group to help enjoy this now - just freeze some!

Maque Choux Soup (mock shoe)

My family really loves this dish and I hope that yours will too!

This recipe makes a large amount - up to a dozen people depending on the size of your bowls - a real crowd pleaser! Also great as a side dish. Please note that You'll need to prep some additional boudin to include in each bowl if you plan on serving so many people. We generally have enough boudin for 8 initial bowls. It's very filling and perfect for a chilly night! (Yea I am dreaming about fall weather after so many weeks of over 100 degrees! )

Hi all! There are new recipes below and an updated tab of Pantry Basics above - but I also want to share with you the note below from the Kinnikinnick company.

Personally I think the word here should be "RESPECT".  I'd like to see all people simply respect the preference (for lack of a better phrase) of others when it comes to food (and a lot of other things for that matter - but that's a different issue all together.). Weather you have food allergies, intolerance's, Celiac, are a vegetarian or vegan, or any combination there of - RESPECT - Let's all treat one another's nourishment issues with respect. I'd like to see a complete avoidance of nasty comments, hostility, etc. Please read on - with peace, love, and happiness.
