Tonight I'm having potato and bacon soup and cheese biscuits.

One of my favorites. Make it several times each winter. Do you use onions in it? Cheese biscuits. Oh my.

Yes I do use onions in it. I also use a couple of diced carrots and I use half and half in it and I puree 1 cup of the soup in the blender and then add it back into the soup and it makes it really thick. I don't put cheese in it but I have a bunch of shredded cheese and sliced green onions for everyone to add to their soup if they want it.

Sounds delicious  :eusa_drool:  What else do you do to make it?

You should have a TV show and publish a cookbook  ;D

Thank you. Here's my recipie for potato soup.

10 large potatoes.  No particular kind, any potatoes will work.
3 onions diced.
2 carrots diced.
2 stalks of celery diced.  My brother doesn't like celery so I leave it out of mine.
3 garlic cloves diced.
2-3 cans of chicken stock. Enough to cover the potatoes.
1/3 cups of butter plus 1 stick.
1/3 cup of flour.
2 1/2 cups of milk or half and half.
1/2 cup of sour cream. If you don't like sour cream leave it out and use. 3 cups of half and half.
1 package of diced ham or about 2 1/2 cups.
1/2 - 1 pound of bacon. I cook it in the oven until it's done but not crispy. Then I cut it into bite size pieces. The idea of hard crunchy bacon in the soup doesn't appeal to me.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into bite size pieces. Add the diced carrots to the pot and add enough chicken stock to cover everything and bring it to a boil. Once it boils turn the heat down and let it simmer. Brown the onion in bacon grease and add them to the pot. In another pot melt the butter and then whisk in the flour.  Cook it for 2-3 minutes. Slowly whisk in the half and half. Keep whisking it until it's smooth and let it simmer on medium low until it thickens. Salt and pepper it to taste. Scoop out about 1 1/2 cups of cooked potatoes with a little bit of the liquid. Let it cool a little and then puree it in the blender. You don't have to do this. I do it because it makes the soup thicker. Don't try to blend it until it's cooled off a little. If you put something really hot in the blender as soon as you turn it on it will erupt out and spray you with hot liquid. Add the puree back to the soup and stir in the half and half and sour cream. Add the diced ham, bacon and the stick of butter. I have shredded cheese and chopped green onions for topping the soup. This is even better the next day. I make it this way so it's hardy enough for 3 guys. You can change the ingredients around to make it healthier.

Tonight I'm having spinach and sausage lasagna and garlic cheese bread. I made a Boston cream pie earlier to have for desert. My dad found it and now it has a slice out of it. So annoying! Lol

Hi All! It was very snowy here so I made some hand-torn noodle soup this weekend (so much fun, although my technique is not so great for the noodles yet!). Was out all day yesterday and hubby suggested we pick up Indian, so we had Gobi 65, samosas, goan fish curry and malai kofta. I thought of you, Davina!

My dad came over for one of our occasional meals to catch up away from my mum. Chicken and ham pie with fresh veg. For dessert a few pecan biscuits I baked last night.

Tonight I'm making liver and carmelized onions and smashed red potatoes. I know a lot of people think liver is totally nasty but if you soak it in milk for 2 hours before cooking it it gets rid of that really strong bitter/liver taste.

Thai fishcakes with sweet chilli sauce & king prawns, peppers, onions, carrots & mangetout in mild Thai sauce with noodles. Couldn't be bothered cooking for one so I ate out on my own like Billy no mates
