I love snow days that actually have a significant amount of snow.

It's a cold, snowy day today.  (A legitimate snowfall this time.)  School was cancelled today and tomorrow, so this has been my veiw for a good portion of the day:



Tomorrow I really want to build lots of tiny snowmen


Cold weather leaves me craving soup.  So I made a pot of cheesy potato soup for dinner.  It's pretty easy.  Boil about 5 diced potatotes and 1/2 a chopped onion until the potatoes are soft (use just enough water to cover them in the pot).  Add milk until you get the desired consistency.  Add a couple spoons of butter.  Let this heat back up, then add shredded cheese.  I use about half a bag (which I think equals about a cup).  Serve with bacon bits.  Yes, I'm very inexact with my measurements when it comes to soup, but this one is pretty easy to figure out.

Your soup sounds good - I have been making soup for several days now: bean soup; onion, potato, and ham soup; red chili; tomorrow will be red pepper potato soup; and Saturday will be split pea soup with the ham bone from New Year's Day. We don't have snow here but it is very cold for us! Have some fun days at home!

Somehow I came across a comment you wrote on someone else's blog...and I just HAD to stop by and say hi because you are the only person I've ever come across who spells their name the same way as me! So....HI!

Thanks for the soup recipe. I totally copied and pasted in into word and printed it just the way you typed it. Now to add to the cook book. I have been looking for an easy potato soup.
