Butternut Squash Soup
I only made a couple of changes and it only made it easier. Instead of bouillon i used LowFat, Low Sodium Chicken Stock and reduced the amount of cream cheese to 12 oz. using Low Fat Cream Cheese. Added a little parsley on top and it was delicious. I'm enjoying a mug of it right now!!!!

Egg Sandwich
This one really gave me a good laugh. I've been doing this since the microwave was invented. With me, crunchy toast is a musthave, so I would never put the toast in after toasting. Simply undercook your egg just a tad and then add your cheese, or just whip them all up together "omelette" style and you're good to go. I make my breakfast burittos this way and the kids love them(which I then place on the tortilla and do a quick 30 seconds in the microwave). Add bacon, ham, sausage or anything else that floats your boat. A little finely chopped onion and peppers. Limitless.

Low Fat Full Flavor Cream of Broccoli Soup
Was exactly what the Dr. ordered. I'm on a fluid only, restriction diet and this has saved me from the doldrums of high protein shakes. I made a half batch just to be sure it wouldn't go to waste, but of course everyone loves it, so I'll be making another batch soon. The only deviations I made was to add a little garlic powder and instead of evaporated milk, I used FatFree Half&Half. I hesitated regarding substituting onions for leeks and I'm very glad I stayed with the leeks. They do make a big difference. Enjoy this soup, It's a lifesaver!
