    This was wonderful! I totally forgot to add the flour into the milk :( so I did the cornstarch/water thing and it just really wouldn't thicken up right for me. It didn't matter though cause the flavor was wonderful! I am going to make this again the right way, can't wait!

    Don't believe I've used marjoram in spinach soup before...it was very, very good. Didn't puree the soup but just chopped the spinach. Like eating a big bowl of creamed spinach! Yum.

    This sounds fantastic! I guess you could use just about anything: broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, etc. Great recipe, endless possibilities! ;')
