Staying Comfy :January

Staying Comfy
By Tammy

Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat. ~Author Unknown

I am guilty of this. I am SO cold natured. I freeze constantly. Here's something we do to give us that warm comfort feeling.

A big bowl of hot steaming soup always makes you feel better, and there are so many varieties to choose from.
Our favorite is Potato Soup.

Now,... I can cook alright....but I guess I cook a little on the lazy side.... If there's a shortcut, I take it! For instance here's my potato soup recipe...
I make it the easy way. I bake some potatoes in the microwave, and while they're cooking,I get my pot ready with some milk, butter, and spices, . Then at the end, I peel and mash the potatoes. I then add them to the soup, along with some shredded cheddar cheese, and let it simmer. The spices I use are usually; garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and salt. "Nature's Seasoning" is good in it too. The amounts are up to you. Spicy or bland? Thick-N-hearty or thin-N-soupy?

Of course I "make" biscuits to go with it. I cheat there too.
I make "Bisquick Complete" cheese garlic biscuits. (In a yellow 7.5 oz pkg.) Just add water, and bake. They're ready in 15 minutes, and they are super! The only drawback,- they have a little transfat. There's no cholesterol though.

Soup's on!

  1. Thanks Tammy, this has been fun, Hey good idea, the potatoe soup, the pictures looked so pretty. It made me hungry for some and I'm out of potatoes.Thanks again. This was fun. Love you guys.

  2. Hi, I love the potatoe soup you make. And now other people can enjoy it, too. It sounds like it would be good with corn bread. P.S.
    Love the cheese on it.
    Until we meet again, eat flowers and put cooking oil in your sugar bowl.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to write. Tammy
