Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Beccy planned to meet up with a friend today so I decided to make soup for a quick lunch. Beccy has an agreement with Mollie that if she eats this soup she doesn't have to eat broccoli but it's still a bit of a struggle for her. She managed it encouraged by the thought of icecream (bribary works wonders sometimes). The cream combined with cheese does make this quite a rich soup (quite good for dinner parties).

2 Onions
2oz (50g) butter
1 Pint (600ml) stock (I used fresh turkey stock today)
3 oz (75g) grated Cheddar cheese
1/4 pt (150ml) single cream
salt and pepper.
Peel slice onions cook in butter over gentle heat until soft. Trim and chop broccoli and add to pan, turning in buttery juices for a minute or two. Add stock simmer for 20 mins. Liquidise and season to taste, stir in cream and cheese over gentle heat until well amalgamated.

While the family were out I decided to do some baking having promised Ben a lemon cake and Beccy an apple and cinnamon cake. Both met with approval.

I am sure our dinner today is the same as many other families 'turkey curry' and I still have enough turkey left for one more meal. I think that will have to be a turkey and ham pie or turkey croquettes.

The apple cake was delicious Mum.

My vote would be turkey croquettes but everybody else probably prefers the pie!
