Food Friday - Broccoli Soup

I am linking up today over at Kellys Korner  for "Show us your Life Friday" 

Broccoli Soup
adapted from Comfy in the Kitchen

Don't you love my new dishes?  They are so awesome!  Anyway, this was one of two soups I made for New Year's Eve and it was fabulous even though I did not follow directions ;-)  One of the great things were the noodles that you add to it - it really add some "stick to your gut" fullness to this soup. So, what did I do wrong?  I didn't cook the broccoli first - had I done that, I could have then cut the broccoli into small pieces like you were supposed to - it's kind of hard to cut frozen broccoli pieces! I also had probably twice as many noodles as it called for as well.  I ate this for lunch throughout the following week and it only got better as it was re-heated! 

3/4 c. chopped onion
3 T butter
3 c. chicken stock
4 oz. very thin noodles
1/2 t. salt
1-10 oz. pkg frozen, chopped broccoli, cooked according to directions & finely chopped
1/2 t. garlic powder
3 c. milk
1/2 lb. velveeta
pepper to taste

saute onions in butter until tender. add chicken stock & heat to boiling. add noodles & salt & cook for approx. 3 minutes. stir in broccoli & garlic powder & cook 4 more min. reduce heat & add milk & cheese, stirring constantly until cheese is melted. season w/ salt and pepper to taste.
