Even though I'm not Irish and I've never really felt the need to celebrate St. Patty's Day, the fact that there was a raucous parade outside of my office inspired me to at least cook one green item for dinner yesterday. I'd had my eye on this Broccoli Cheddar soup from 101cookbooks for a while now and not only was it a cinch to pull together (I even used a no-fuss bag of frozen broccoli!), but it was completely delicious and very flavorful. We added a mostly seeded jalepeno pepper for a bit of a kick and had it with some garlic bread and chicken cutlets. It's definitely going into regular rotation!
