Broccoli Soup Anyone?

At Dude Time Doodles, the challenge this week is Fall Colors.

I had to think a long time about what great image to use. I finally settled on the
Who Brought the Broccoli image. I needed to make some lunch for a friend who just had surgery so I made some Broccoli Cheddar Soup and decorated it with this totally fun image. Here is the container and loaf of bread.

Here is a closer picture of the top.

This Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup gives Panera Bread's soup a good run for its money. Here is the recipe:

2 16 oz packages of frozen chopped broccoli
2 10.75 oz cans of cheddar cheese soup
2 12 cans of evaporated milk
1/4 cup of finely chopped onions
1/2 tsp solt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
bacon bits

Combine all the ingredients except the shredded cheese and bacon bits in a slower cooker, cover, and cook on low for 8-10 hours. About 30 minutes before done, add the shredded cheddar. Garnish with bacon bits when served. Serve with really good bread and/or sandwiches. Serves 8.

So grab your Fall colors and join us at Dude Time Doodles for our Fall colors challenge.
