Mama B’s Kitchen

My mother-in-law is a great cook and frugal so I thought it would be fun to enter her kitchen each week and get a recipe from her! If you have a cheap recipe that you’d like to share please email it to me at

With the weather beginning to get cooler, my thoughts always turn to soup. Here is a favorite of mine. Serve it with a sandwich or warm fresh, homemade bread! When you see a sale on the broccoli or cauliflower, chop it up, measure it, and freeze it for later use.

Cream of Broccoli or Cauliflower Soup

6 cups water
9-12 teaspoons chicken bouillion
1 medium onion
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
8 cups broccoli or cauliflower
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon thyme, optional
Bring the above to a boil and boil for 10 minutes or more.

1 stick margarine

Then stirring until there are no lumps mix:
½ – 1 cup flour
1 quart milk

Add milk and flour mixture to soup. Stir and cook until thickened. Makes a large pot!
