Recipe - Potato & Broccoli Soup

You already know I love Winter, but you may not know that I love soup.

Soup embodies everything that is awesome about Winter. It's warming and delicious. Soup is one of the easiest meals to make, with very little needed to make something delicious.

Here is my Potato & Broccoli Soup. It's been given to me by my friend Alex.
