Broccoli Cheddar Soup

This post was originally published June 29, 2012 I heard that Phil saw his shadow this year. Bring on six more weeks of winter. I, of course, am not complaining. Florida winter is the absolute best. High of 65, sunny, a little breeze. Doesn't that sound like your perfect day? Occasionally it drops a little lower than I like.
