I know that most of the country is encountering very cold temperatures today.  Here in Georgia, we are not excluded.  It was a very cold 11 degrees when we left for school this morning!  brrrrr!

Nick and I have spent most of the day cuddled on the couch watching movies 🙂  A perfect jammie day!

This weather is also the perfect soup weather!  Tonight we are having Baked Potato Soup, a recipe I originally got from Quick Cooking magazine, but adapted for our family.  Here’s the recipe I use:

  • 3-4 potatoes
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 5-6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Peel and cube potatoes.  Boil in water til tender (about 30 min).  In a large saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth.  Gradually stir in milk.  Bring to boil and continue to stir until thickened (about 2 minutes).  Remove from heat and whisk in sour cream.  Add potatoes and heat through.  Garnish with bacon and cheese.  Serves 3-4.
