Two yummy and quick recipes

So here are two recipes that I really enjoy.  The alfredo one I made a couple weekends ago and we all loved it, we actually think that it was better the second day!  The other is a soup I made last year that I can't wait to make this year - they are both perfect for fall/winter recipes!  Most of this stuff you'll have on hand, which was pretty nice.  I never seem to have the ingredients on hand when I find a new recipe.

Crockpot Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Broccoli Cheese Soup

3 cups water
3 cups chicken stock
3 bags broccoli steamers (could use fresh if you have any left from the garden!)
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 package kraft american cheese slices
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup milk
1 cup light cream
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup cold water
1/3 cup all purpose white flour

In large saucepan, bring the water (3 cups) and stock to a boil.  Add the broccoli and onion; boil for 10 to 12 minutes.  Add the cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts.  Add the milk, cream and butter.  Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.

Add the water (1/2 cup) to the flour and mix until smooth.  Add slowly to the hot soup, stirring rapidly.  Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the soup is the consistency of heavey cream.  Serve with rolls.

Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
