Yahoo! Only one more birthday. My husband’s is the 13th. I will take him out on Saturday night. I hope to but him a spiffy shirt and tie. He’s hard to buy for.
Friday night, my daughter had a sleep over with two friends at our rental property. It’s the perfect party place, just across the yard from our house. Only one thing, I slept over there after midnight for “security” reasons… That’s when my trouble began. I had my son’s boy scout cot, a doubled over foam mattress, my own bedding and two pillows; my night was still horrible. I woke up many times (unusual for me) and got up at 7:30. My back still isn’t back to normal.
I will be painting the rental property today. I like to paint. I listen to teaching CDs and I get MESSY!
The following is my third installment in my Monday Soup Recipe series. This is a great and easy recipe and everybody in my family enjoys it. That can not be said for many of the recipes I prepare. Most of the time five people like something, sometimes only 4. I don’t make anything for less that four, usually.
CHEESE POTATO SOUP
3 medium potatoes, chopped (about 2 cups)
1 large onion, chopped (about one cup)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth or chicken stock
8 oz. shredded cheese
Bacon bits (to taste)
Heat potatoes, onion, chicken stock to boiling.
Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
Place in a blender container; add cheese. (most blenders have a hot fill line at about two cups, do not over fill-it will explode, ask me how I know!)
Cover and blend on high speed until uniform consistency.
Sprinkle each serving with bacon bits.
4 servings (about one cup each)
Note: I always triple or quadruple this recipe. It’s a lot of chopping, but remember I have six family members and making more is ONE LESS MEAL I HAVE TO PREPARE!!!!!!!
I add cheddar flavored goldfish (Pepperidge Farm). This is probably what makes this soup a favorite…
It’s harvest time
What have you planted?
