Creature from the Deep Soup!

This soup is the perfect soup for your Halloween buffet. It is spooky, has green stuff, and is covered in goo!  It will also keep you warm when you are trick or treating.
Creature from the Deep, Soup
5 tablespoons Butter, divided
1 small Onion
1 stalk Celery
3 cups Chicken Base  
8 cups Broccoli Florets
3 tablespoons Flour 
  2 cups Milk
 Black Pepper
2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Chop up the stalk of celery into bite size pieces.
Chop the onion also.
Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and saute the onion and celery
in a large pot. Cook until tender.
Make base according to directions . I love to use
Tone's Chicken Base. To get the 3 cups we need, I just 
mixed 3 teaspoons of base with 3 cups of rolling boiling 
water. Tone's has a great flavor, and it is easy to store 
in the refrigerator. Add the broth to the pot.
Chop up the broccoli into small bite size pieces. 
Cut all excess stalk off of the broccoli.
Add broccoli to the pot.
Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
In a small saucepan, add 3 tablespoons of butter, and the flour.
Then add the milk, stirring until thick and bubbly.
Add to soup. Mix.
Add cheddar cheese, and stir.
The heat will help the cheese melt, 
and it will become creamy.
Delicious!
