Soups For A Great Fall.......Creamy Broccoli soup

The fall is the perfect time for soup. 
 I will be creating a  soup list on my blog of all the beloved soup recipes I have collected and made through the years.  

If you have a recipe you would like to share, I would love that.  I can link to your blog or share it here.  
I will post new soups several times a week for fall.  Keep coming back friends!
