Broccoli Soup

I have yet to make this. I already have another fabulous broccoli soup recipe, but it's not for the crockpot. And since this very recipe is for the slow cooker, we have to use processed cheese (which is unusual for me. But since my family left their Velveeta cheese in my fridge, I'm going to use it gosh dang it!). It should taste good enough though, and at least it's easy!

2-3 lbs. fresh broccoli, chopped
1 T. butter
2 c. milk
1/2 c. cheese, cut into small cubes

1. Place broccoli (no yucky tough stalks) and butter in slow cooker; cover with water.
2. Cover and cook on high 1-2 hours.*
3. Add milk and cook an additional 15 minutes.
4. Stir in cheese and continue cooking until melted into soup.
5. Serve with bread, like your Grandpa's sour-dough biscuits, mmmm.

* Since we're not cooking meat, which is better cooked on low for long hours, it's ok to cook on high. We're basically just cooking the broccoli. I hope our places don't stink...
