Welcome to my new follower Jane Austen.

January grocery spend so far is now £10.38.

I purchase reduced yogurts and these.....

£2.50 for this lovely piece of stilton, and it came on a ceramic stand which I am sure I can make use of.

A pot of Stilton and a small bottle of Port was £1.50 so I had two.

So last night it had to be Broccoli and Stilton soup.

I still have a huge tray of vegetables down in the shed which are still as fresh as when I bought them reduced over a week ago. In there were two heads of Broccoli.

Broccoli & Stilton Soup

1 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil.
500g of broccoli - roughly chopped
120 g of stilton
1 onion - peeled and chopped
1 litre of vegetable stock

Heat the oil and cook the onion on a medium heat for five minutes.
Pour in the stock and season.
Bring to the boil.
Add the broccoli and reduce heat and let simmer for eight  minutes.
Remove from heat and crumble in the stilton.
Blend and then return to the heat until hot again.

Really quick and easy and soup is so cheap to make.

We had this last night and will be finishing it off for lunch tommorow.

It was delicious.

I shall leave you with a photo of my beautiful Amaryliss.
