Cheesy Broccoli Soup

My favorite thing about cold weather (I'll be honest, there aren't many things I actually like about the cold weather) is all the food that comes along with it.  Soups, stews and baked goods.  This Cheesy Broccoli Soup is great for a quick meal on a cool day.

1/4 cup butter, melted
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces and steamed
2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese

In a large pan melt butter over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic and let cook for 1 minute. Whisk in flour and cook for 5 minutes, just until golden brown. Slowly add in chicken stock, half-and-half, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir together and let cook until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the broccoli and cheese and stir until just combined.
