Broccoli Soup

I have determined that the best way to get out of having to take the flu shot without feeling guilty is to get sick. Yes. Believe it or not. If you don't like needles or just plain think flu immunization is a ridiculous idea, get the flu, and they won't make you get the shot. Personally, while I don't particularly enjoy being sick, I find this excuse has helped me a great deal, as our government has cleverly succeeded in making me feel obligated to get immunized just because I work in the health care system. Not that I'm actually getting anywhere near the clients who I might pass the disease on to...but that is apparently beside the point. So I am definitely appreciating the genius who decided when you're sick you should wait to have the shot.

Now that I've rambled on about that...I decided tonight to make cream of broccoli soup for supper. It was moderately good. I think it might have been better with more broccoli and less salt, although I couldn't decide if it was the salt the recipe said to add or the chicken broth that was the problem in that department. Either way, more broccoli would have been better. But for a first try, an acceptable success.

Not much else for news. Work is same old same old for both Tim and I. Christmas comes upon us much quicker than I or my wallet would like. But I look forward to those few days off we get to spend with family and friends enjoying good food and fun times.
