Aunt Julie's *Recipe Week*, Day #5: We're in "Soup Mode," for Sure!

Yes, it's true, Dear Readers. I get hungry for a Hearty Bowl of Soup as soon as that First Snowflake Falls. Yesterday, we treated you to Aunt Julie's Wild Rice Soup; today, you're in for another treat from Julie Eliz's Recipe Box. Of course, you must serve Aunt Julie's Broccoli Soup with some more of those crusty and delish Fresh Sheboygan Hard Rolls!

Aunt Julie's Broccoli Soup
1 ½ cup chicken broth
½ cup chopped onion
2 cups broccoli
Combine ingredients, boil, then simmer 10 minutes, 'til broccoli is tender

In the meantime:

Melt 2 tbsp butter.
Add 2 tbsp flour, stir.

Add ¼ tsp. each, salt and pepper
Slowly add 1 cup milk.
Warm, and stir.

Add the butter/flour mixture to chicken broth/onion/broccoli, and stir 'til thick.
You can double or triple this recipe for a crowd! And, don't forget the Sheboygan Hard Rolls!
