rethink the grocery list

You know I like sharing random finds with you. Isn't that what a blog is for? Well today I randomly found this website I was looking for a pre-made grocery list that I could print off and stick to the fridge. This way you don't forget anything. Everything is already on the list, you just check off what you need.
So the creator of this website actually put together, and posted on his site, a collection of grocery lists that he found in shopping carts (we call 'em buggies where I'm from). Strange huh? He explains that it's fun to see what other people add to their lists and see how they misspell things-even stranger. But for some reason, I sort of found his site intriguing at the same time.
I'll add a link so you can see all he's posted and his "ultimatest grocery list."

just a few camping/kayaking things I like

Jon and I hope to get into kayaking, when we can afford it. I found these Keens and PFD that I like.

broccoli cheddar soup

Back in Augusta, I LOVED Panera Bread's broccoli cheddar soup in a bread bowl. Sadly, there is no Panera Bread in Wilmington. So I searched on and found this recipe for broccoli cheddar soup. (I didn't puree the soup like the recipe suggests. I just chopped the broccoli into tiny bits.)

1 head fresh broccoli, chopped
1 (2 ounce) package dry leek or potato soup mix
3 cups water
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

In a medium sized stock pot, over medium heat, combine soup mix and water, stirring constantly until well mixed.
Add broccoli florets, partially cover and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes stirring often.
Once broccoli is tender, place soup in a food processor or blender and puree. Once blended return soup mixture to stock pot, add milk and stir.
Add cheese to soup mixture keeping 1/2 cup set aside. Stir soup until cheese is melted and then sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese on top of individual soup servings.
