Broccoli Cheese Soup

This is a quick and easy recipe. It's super good to boot. Yum! A coworker brought this soup to work for a lunch one day and printed the recipe out for everyone. The original recipe came from cooks.com

1 can family size cream of chicken soup (I once used cream of celery, no biggie)
3 tablespoons of grated onion
2 tablespoons of butter
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 package fresh or frozen broccoli florets, steamed until very tender

-In a large pot, saute onion in the butter. Over low heat: Add can of soup (undiluted) to pot and stir.
-Add cheese and stir until thoroughly melted. Add milk and whisk until smooth. And broccoli and stir. Simmer until bubbly.

-This can be good using a package of mixed broccoli and cauliflower, steamed.
-You may add 2 packages of broccoli if you like it really broccoli-y.
-After sauteing the onion, you can put all the ingredients into a crockpot and cook, stirring occasionally, until bubbly.

Not the most flattering pic, but it was taken with my blackberry so that's what you get.

Thanks for the comments on my master bedroom! :) You asked what color the coverlet is...and it's a chocolate brown. I apparently suck at taking pictures! haha. So that might be too dark for the walls. I'm thinking maybe either keeping the tan or going a few shades lighter than sage... I'll keep everyone posted!
