Easy Mac and Cheese Soup with Broccoli and Chicken

My kids love mac and cheese (and so do I.)  

I've have the best Mac and Cheese soup recipe (with broccoli and chicken) to share with you today. The recipe is good timing, since it looks like we're in for at least one more polar blast before winter is through with us. We were in the 80's this weekend but, with this next front, we'll be lucky if Wednesday's highs get much above freezing.  Perfect weather for soup.

Easy Mac and Cheese Soup with Broccoli and Chicken

Looks yummy, doesn't it? Funny thing, I just recently ordered some replacement forks and spoons from Oneida, and how shiny are these new spoons? You can totally see me and the basketball goal reflected in the spoon... (Maybe I should have changed out of my pj bottoms...)
