Smoked Gouda Broccoli Soup & Things I Said

Hello friends~

To all you mom athletes out there (and you are all athletes!), I hope you were feeling the love on Mother’s Day. I had calls from the kids (all parents now) and we did some reminiscing.

One of the things that make being a mom especially great is being reminded of things I said:

 “I’ll turn this car around!”

 “If you don’t clean your room, everything is going in the trash.”

 “I mean it this time!”

 “NO…but add it to your birthday/Christmas list.”

 “I’m not going to ask you again!

 “You’re grounded!” (Then forgetting.)

 “I’m not bringing your lunch/homework/cleats/baseball mitt to school ever again!”

 “I don’t know” is NOT an answer.

But I loved hearing this from the kids every day:

As soon as they walked in the door every afternoon:

Kid: “What’s for dinner?”

Me: “Are you checking the menu in case you might go somewhere else?” But I think it really meant that they were looking forward to something good.

I enjoyed cooking for my family, and most of the time the kids liked or were willing to at least try what I made. Soups and stews were an easy and frequent go-to, with bread and cheese.

I’m having food-related mommy flashbacks remembering my youngest, about 4-years old walking around the grocery store munching on a whole head of broccoli. I think this smoked gouda-broccoli soup would have made everyone at my table happy.

It is the second Monday of the month, so enjoy this Recipe Edition!
