While living in Florida I always looked forward to spending Monday's with Aunt Rose and her family. She would put on a pot of soup and feed the masses! She said that it was always good for you to have soup to cleanse the body of all the crap you ate over the weekend. She didn't exactly say it that way, that's just my interpretation! So here we are, 30 plus years or so later and I am still making soup on Monday nights. Anyone who knows me, knows that there will be some sort of soup served on Monday night. Soup is the main course so it's usually a hearty soup.
So while today is Tuesday and not Monday I am still making a soup. I am going away tomorrow for a week and know that anything I have in the refrigerator will rot! I had a huge bag of broccoli that had to be cooked, and decided to make it into a velvety "cream" of broccoli soup.
I cleaned about 6 heads of broccoli
