But did you know what the song Super Trouper is actually all about? It’s a kind of spotlight (a fact that I had to convince my esteemed and allegedly learned co-editors was true)! Hence the lyrics:
Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won’t feel blue
Like I always do
‘Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you
Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
OK so they might also be about a person and the spotlight is clever analogy – but hey – at least it explains my choice of photo props!
This broccoli and cheese soup was actually made in one of my newest kitchen gadgets – an Instant Pot. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s like a modern pressure cooker but it also has a slow cooker function, sauté function – and more! So with this recipe, you just jump everything in, set it going, walk away – and come back to find lunch is all ready for you!
If you don’t have an Instant Pot – then I’m sure that if you dump all the ingredients into a saucepan and cook it there – that would work well too!
