Broccoli Noodle Soup
1 pkg (10 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli
1 oz. angel hair pasta, broken into small pieces
2-3 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. flour
1 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup milk
1/8 tsp. pepper
6 oz. processed cheese (Velveeta), cubed
1/2 cup sour cream

Cook both the broccoli and pasta according to package directions; drain. In a large saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in the chicken broth, milk, and pepper until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in cheese until melted. Stir in the broccoli, pasta, and sour cream; heat through (do not boil). Yield: 4-5 servings

    I must have missed something, what is the SB cookbook? And yes, please post recipes for things your children enjoy! LOL I could always use good kid-friendly recipes!

    I’m going to make a meal plan for this week too and I’ll post it as well.

    As part of my New Year goals, I’m starting weekly meal planning, too. On my second week and so far so good! I’m dusting off my food blog and will be posting my meals there.

    Sounds good! I will have to try that broccoli thing for my hubby, he loves that sort of stuff.

    We’re having a moroccan chicken dish, a chicken pot pie (chicken’s on sale … heh), salmon burgers and a shrimp rice bowl thing from Everyday Food. Should be good, I think.

    Mmmmmm, I’m going to make the broccoli noodle soup this weekend I think. I need to go through my SB cookbook as well.
