 Brocolli Cheese Soup  
As you may know, I have always been envious of Norm’s ability to create recipes out of whatever he finds in the pantry or refrigerator. Some people are gifted with that innate talent. I, on the other hand, prefer to be guided by the ‘written word’ and am cautious when challenged to wing it on my own.
When I got home from work one day last week there was a wonderful aroma that greeted me at the door. I lifted the lid of a pot to find a delicious smelling soup simmering away. Curious as to the origin, I asked Norm where he had gotten it. “Out of my head” was his reply, and I immediately knew I was in for a treat!
We added a tossed salad and multigrain rolls and sat down to enjoy our dinner. After the feast, I was wondering if he could recreate it so we could be assured of having it again. True to form, he came up with what you see below. As with his other creations, I am sure there will be revisions, but I can assure you this one is worth a try.
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Serves 3-4
15 oz. jar Alfredo pasta sauce
1 jar milk (he used 1%)
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
3 slices American cheese
1 c. roughly chopped broccoli florets
salt (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Place on the stove, simmer for 1 hour
