Broccoli Cheese Soup for 2 and home made croutons

While at mom’s I’ve been cooking what is available in the freezer and pantry.   It’s going to be fun and challenging to use up everything found there making space for the holiday foods the family will be coming in with.  Tonight we had a scrumptious Broccoli Soup.  


In the freezer I found a Green Giant broccoli steam pouch, in the fridge was a little milk, half an onion and some grated Mexican blend cheese. It was just enough to make a creamy soup for the two of us.  


Serve with croutons on top.

What I love about this soup is that everything was already on hand and it was warm and comforting on a cool fall day.
