Potato Broccoli Soupy Cheesy Goodness

It’s soooooo HOT in Toronto this week!  All this hot weather has inspired me to do two things, clean and cook.  Now I know you are thinking why would you clean in hot weather and not go to the beach? Believe me I was asking myself the same question on Monday when it was 81 degree’s in my house as I was doing laundry.  But cooking, well that just never stops! Yesterday JJ and I went to Rowe Farms (Beach location) and ended up buying a ridiculously expensive t-bone steak, I didn’t look at the price until I pulled out my debit card to pay…and the register read $131.00, I was like WTF? Steak, potatoes and some organic potato chips, are you serious.  Then JJ and the butcher started talking about how it was a 25 day aged t-bone and “please tell me what you think”, well at that point I couldn’t exactly say take it back.  DAMMM skippy I wanted to try this steak. So that is exactly what we are doing tonight!

The potato’s I bought to be BBQ-ed with the steak have turned into the recipe you are about the read – Potato Broccoli Soupy Cheesy Goodness
