If your from Richmond/Rosenberg, you know of Sandy McGee's! I am not going to say this compares to her Broccoli Cheese Soup! But It is pretty good!! I got this recipie from the Parade insert in the Sunday paper back in May. Here you go!!

3 cups chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
4 cups broccoli, chopped
Dash of garlic powder
1 tsp thyme
2 bay leaves
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheddar
Slices of crust bread

1. In a large saucepan, mix chicken broth, onion, broccoli, garlic powder, thyme, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.

2. Removes bay leaves and pour mixture into a food processor. Pulse until smooth, approximately 1 minute.  Reserve in a bowl.

3. In the original saucepan, melt butter. Whisk in flour, salt, and a little pepper until a thick paste forms. And millk and cook, sitrring constantly, until mixture thickens. And milk and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. And cheddar; stir until dissolves.
