September is National Preparedness month. All month I've been thinking of being prepared. All I can thinking of is prepared for what? I live in the high desert of Colorado. I live on a hill so no flooding here. Tornado,ummm unlikely. I do have to cross a bridge to get into town, and if all 4 bridges out of here fail I could be in trouble. The biggest threat? A massive blizzard. That is a real possibility. We have had snow day's around here. Wet snow two feet deep. Not bad, but if the conditions were just right I could have to deal with a blizzard. So in light of National Preparedness Month I've decided to use some of our prepping items, and then tell you about them. We love Augason Farms Cheesy Broccoli Soup Mix. It is wonderful to have on hand, and has a shelf life of 10 years.
Tonight for dinner I used up the last of my Cheesy Broccoli Soup Mix. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Loaded Broccoli and Cheese Soup.

I served our soup with Grilled Cheese Pull-A-Parts. This was a very satisfying dinner!
