stupid easy broccoli cheese soup

i was really in the mood for some broccoli cheese soup today. cora was sick last night, up and down choking on mucus and/or spit up, so i spent 4am-9am on the couch with her, keeping her upright. then bella woke up at 9 to open her presents. by the time it was the afternoon, i had forgotten that i needed to make something to feed to my family. seeing as how it has been a rainy, windy, cold, dreary day today, i took to the almighty internet to look for some soup recipes. and everything was way more complicated than i was looking for, aka-required ingredients i didn't have. 

i had some stuff on hand and figured it would work so i tried it, and it was easy. it was stupid how easy it was. and it was good. (not like those recipes you find on pinterest that claim to be oh so good. this was legitimately good).

so here goes.


1 can cream of chicken soup (+1 can water)
1 can cream of broccoli soup (+1 can water)
1 bag shredded cheddar cheese
1 head broccoli

mix soups and water in pot on medium heat. stir until well blended.
add in broccoli. 
simmer for a few minutes, depending on how you like your broccoli. we like it a little crunchier, so i let it sit for about 5 minutes or so.
add in cheese. stir until well blended.

DONE!  stupid easy, right?!!? 

i added a little bacon to ours (and keeping with the theme, it was bacon bits. the real kind though, not the crunchy ones). 

and on that note, merry christmas.
