Easy Broccoli Cheese Sauce


So I was pretty psyched about making this broccoli cheese sauce for my baked potato yesterday. I even texted my husband about it. “I’m gonna make cheese sauce for my potato later, it’s gonna be a big night”… clearly I need to get out of the house- with my 6 week old baby though, that’s not always easy. You know what else is not always easy with a 6 week old baby? Eating. 

…Which is why this was wrapped up in the fridge today, totally uneaten. Between bath time and a little fussy time, and non stop bouncing in her bouncer, (something I’m doing with my foot as we speak…), I failed to eat my potato. I did taste the cheese sauce though, and immediately knew it belonged on my blog, because it was A-MAZ-ING. And thus, I had to snap a pic of my perfectly uneaten potato from last night, to make sure I got to share this easy cheesy recipe with you 😉 Easiness and Cheesiness are my two favorite things, after all.

Speaking of easy recipes, my last one for Ramen Noodle Chicken Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce, was like BEYOND tasty if you didn’t catch it… I kind of made it up as I went but it’s definitely one of my favorites now…highly recommend it 😉 If you’re in the market for more easy-peasy recipes and you’re not on my email list, I suggest you join STAT! Because easy, yet tasty, needs to be the name of the game for the next 18 years I think…
