Thank you for visiting my page.  I hope your Valentine's Day was great and you felt the love!  This is my first post so I'm not sure exactly what all I will be putting here. 

The weekend has barely ended and I'm ready for the next.  My mom used to say I was wishing my life away - and I haven't stopped yet.  It seems the older I get the more I like my time off from work.

I will be making CHEESY potato soup this Saturday.  It's VERY rich and calorie laden, but sure is good.  Here's the recipe if you'd like to make it too.

5-6 medium red potatoes
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 stick butter
1/4 red onion diced
1 pint heavy cream
4 cups milk
12 oz. Velveeta

Bake potatoes in the microwave.  Peal and dice the potatoes and set aside.  Melt butter in a 3 qt. dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat.  Add onions and cook until translucent.  Add flour - stir.  Add milk; stir until mixture starts to thicken.  Add cream and cheese; continue to stir until the cheese melts.  After the cheese melts, lower the heat and add the potatoes.  Cook for approximately 15-20 minutes.  Serve with cornbread.

Thanks for stopping by.  Make your day a great one!
