I am so sorry that I have not made a post for so long!! I was away on holiday and as you know when you are not at home my fellow bloggers, it’s difficult to make a post.

The weather here has been wonderful, still lots of sunshine, well it maybe feels like that cause I just came back from jolly old England!! Everyone has been saying the weather is unusually good with no signs of the snow and some of the days even bearing double digits!! Today’s recipe is an inviting celery soup that is not too heavy and is perfect for this Fall/Winter period! I just got back to Canada a few days ago and I have not actually made any food that I have not blogged about, been tired and had to catch up on a lot of housework and errands.  So I actually made this soup before I went off to England, and I had to empty out my fridge! Even though my husband was not going on vacation with me, I knew he would never ever use up the raw ingredients in the fridge! Does this apply to anybody else’s husband?? So we had this soup for a couple of days before we left, which he thoroughly enjoyed! Hope you enjoy it too!

Now chop up the broccoli. Heat some butter and add the broccoli to the pot and sauté for a few minutes. Add the prepared soup mixture to the broccoli.
