The Best Ever Potato Cheese Soup

Standard

This is a soup my Sister LaRae got from a pot luck at work it was like 32 yrs ago. It is so delicious I had to share it with you. My family loves it so I make it every winter.

POTATO CHEESE SOUP

1 lb of bacon ( I use the thick bacon so I fry about 8 slices ) save the bacon grease!

3 to 4 tomatoes

1 bunch of green onions

5 lbs of potatoes or as much as you like. I like lots of potatoes so I make a big pot that covers 2 burners and do 10 lbs.

8 to 16 cups of Chicken broth

1 can of green chilies. Lg or small  what ever you like or as many as you like.

1 can of milk

and a bunch of cheese ( we like Monetary jack or Mozzarella cheese )

Fresh French bread and butter

 

CS18

This is the thick bacon I buy. So first you fry the bacon then set it aside.

 

CS17

While the bacon is frying I’m cutting up the tomatoes

 

CS16

and green onions to put in the bacon grease.

 

CS15

Then you let it cook for about 20 min.

 

CS19

While I’m frying the tomatoes and green onions in the bacon grease I’m peeling the potatoes and cutting them like this.

 

CS20

Now I put like 8 cups of water then I put 4 tbs of the chicken broth powder and whisk away. You can put it to your liking you can also use canned broth what ever you like.

 

CS14

So I have the potatoes cooking til tinder.

 

CS7

Chop the bacon

 

CS6

grate the cheese

 

CS8

Here I have the green chilies and the can of milk waiting to be put in the soup.

After the tomatoes and green chilies are done add them to the boiling potatoes and Chicken broth.

Then add the green chilies and bacon to the soup.

When the potatoes are tender and ready to eat add the milk and some cheese.

Have a bowl of cheese ready so people can put cheese in their own bowls to there liking.

Steak Sandwich

Standard

 

My husband was wanting a steak sandwich so we were at Safeway and they had some on sale if I remember correctly it was half off. Now I did not cook it that night I thing it was like 2 or 3 days after I bought it that is why its a little brown. But it was very yummy. I cut it up and put some salt and pepper on it.

 

And put the steak in my cast iron skillet with some butter 😉 And I did let the butter get a little brown to give the steak some flavor ( good flavor ) After it was done cooking I took the steak out of the skillet and put the onions in with a little more butter.

 

I sliced the onion and then cut the slices in half to make half rings. Then I sauteed the onions to put on the sandwich.

 

So I used sour dough bread then put the steak, cheese and sauteed onions. And it was yummy!

So sorry it has taken me so long to blog. I’ve just been so busy! I love to blog and I love to cook and share it with you all. Thank you so much for reading my blog and have an awesome weekend!

Well we had Pasta with Chicken and white sauce. But I did not make the white sauce from scratch I used it from a jar.

Pasta

Butter

Garlic

Chicken

Salt and Pepper

Green Onions

White Sauce

 

 

First I started the pasta in a pot with a lid. Here I melted the butter and added some garlic to it.

 

 

Yes I do add garlic and lots of it yummy!

 

 

I had 2 Chicken Breast that I had boiled the other day so I shredded it and put it in the skillet with the butter and garlic.

 

 

After I added the Chicken to the butter and garlic I added salt and pepper to it and let it heat up.

 

 

Then I added the Pasta to the boiling water.

 

 

I cut up the green onions with my Pampered Chef knife and it works awesome 🙂 And there is my White sauce I got it from Walmart.

 

 

After 11 min. I drained the pasta and put it back in the pot.

 

 

Then I added the white sauce, chicken and the green onions.

 

 

Then I stirred it altogether and the family loved it!!! Now I have to tell you I have made the sauce from scratch before but right now I am working 2 jobs so I used the jar sauce and it was just fine.

Thank you so much for reading my blog have an awesome day!

Blackberry Cobbler

Standard

I got this recipe from the Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond. My family loves it!

Ingredients:

1/2 stick of butter. Now I have used 1 stick and it works great. Then I use that same stick to butter the pan you are going to bake it in. Then melt what is left.

1 1/4 cups of sugar

1 cup of self-rising flour

1 cup of whole milk

2 cups of fresh ( or frozen ) blackberries

Whip cream and/or ice cream for serving

Here is my touch I add 2 or 3 handfuls of white chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 1 hour

 

 

This is all the ingredients:

Here we go 🙂

 

 

This is what I bake the cobbler in. The lid is for after it has cooled down and so it well stay fresh.

 

 

I washed the blackberries and put them on a paper towel to dry them. Now I’m sure this is just 1 cup not 2 cups. But the price of blackberries right now is just to high and this amount works for us.

 

 

I just put another paper towel on top to dry them.

 

 

1 cup of self-rising flour.

 

 

1 cup of sugar added to the 1 cup of self-rising flour.

 

 

Whisk the self-rising flour and sugar together.

 

 

Add 1 cup of milk to the self-rising flour and sugar.

 

 

Whisk them all together.

 

 

Butter the baking dish you are going to use.

 

 

Then put the remaining butter in a microwave safe dish so you can melt the butter to put in the batter.

 

 

Add the melted butter the self-rising flour, sugar and milk.

 

 

Pour the batter in the baking dish.

 

 

Now to add the goodies 🙂

 

 

At this point I add some delicious white chocolate chips.

 

 

and some delicious blackberries.

 

Then I put the 1/4 cup of sugar all over the top.

 

 

Now it’s ready to put in the oven at 350 for 1 hour.

 

 

1 hour later it will look like this and taste wonderful with some ice cream and/or whip cream on it or even with out the ice cream and whip cream it still taste wonderful 🙂

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog I hope you liked it. Have an awesome week 🙂

My Son’s Favorite Meal

Standard

I work late a lot so the night before I made this I boiled about 4 to 5 boneless / skinless chicken breast. I started them frozen I put the water in the pan, put the chicken in the water and turn it on high and set the timer for 1 hour. Then I let it set in the pan with no heat on for 30 min. Then I put it in the refrigerator.

Oh and by the way the name of the dinner is 7 Cheese Tortellini with chicken and white sauce.

All you need is:

Chicken

7 Cheese Tortellini

White sauce ( homemade or in a jar )

Butter

Garlic

Salt and pepper

Season salt

The next day I washed the chicken and cut it in chunks. Then I put some butter and garlic in the cast iron skillet to heat up the chicken and it makes it a little brown and the flavor is awesome.

Here is the tortellini  I get it from Costco it comes in a 2 pack. I freeze one and use one.

It’s very fragile. You only have to cook it for the most 8 min. After the water is already boiling that is.

Here I have the Chicken and Tortellini cooking. See the browning on the chicken? It is so delicious!

I mixed it all together and it is ready to serve.

To go with the 7 cheese Tortellini and white sauce is of course Garlic Bread.

And not just Garlic Bread but garlic bread with cheese 🙂

Being served to my husband 🙂

Being served to my son 🙂 2 very happy men.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog I hope you enjoyed it. Have an awesome 3 day weekend I know I will 🙂

My pasta is cooked and drained awaiting the cheese sauce. In the next pot I have started my cheese sauce. I melted some butter then I put a small amount of minced garlic in the butter. Then I added the flour after a few min. I added the cold milk. After it heated up I put in the salt, pepper and dry mustard. After it is hot I took a soup ladle and added the hot sauce to the egg slowly.  Then I added the egg to the sauce.  I stirred it for a few more min. then I added the 3 cheeses to the sauce. And of course I had to try it and it was so yummy!!

The 2 side dishes to go with my Mamma’s Lasagna

Standard

First you put some butter in a sauce pan after it is melted put a bag of frozen corn in.

Just stir it around get some melted butter on as much as you can while frozen.

Then you put a lid on it and turn it down to med. heat. Keep an eye on it so it will not burn. I would say check it about every 5 min or so and give it a stir.

When it’s done you can season it with what ever you like. We like garlic salt and lemon pepper. And the corn is ready to serve.

Next comes the garlic bread. First I put Raw or Minced garlic in softened butter. Mix well.

Then I spread it on some sourdough bread.

Then I sprinkle some Parmesan Cheese on them and bake them at 350 for 5 to 8 min depending how toasty you want them. Then I turn on the broiler to high and let it broil for about 1 1/2 min or until golden brown.

This is how we like it! My family loves the garlic bread.

I hope you like this blog. I know you already know how to make corn and garlic bread. Just had to put it because they go so good with Lasagna.

Spanish Rice

Standard

My friend Danielle gave me a recipe she got from her Mom. I did a little change to it. But then I might change it because I do not have everything it calls for 🙂 Or I add more things to it so this is Danielle’s Mom’s and Mine put together!

1/2 stick of butter

1 1/2 cups of rice

Garlic

3 cups of water now you can add chicken broth powder or use already made chicken broth.

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 Small can of green chiles

2 green onions

1/2 bunch of cilantro

Here is goes!

So first I start out melting the butter then I stir in the rice and garlic. Fry it til it is light brown. Then I add the water and chicken broth powder a tbsp for each cup of water. Also at this point I put in the tomato sauce and the can of green chilies. After it comes to a boil.

I turn it to Med heat cover it and set the timer for 20 min. Then I cut up the green onions and the cilantro to add when it is done.

Here it is with everything added. But I do have to e tell you I did not use the tomato sauce because I did not have any or I would have used it. But it tasted great without it too. Oh yes and because of the chicken broth I do not add salt well I do add salt to my plate. I get in trouble when I add salt to the dish. It will taste great to me but to salty for everyone else.

I hope you liked my blog and will try the recipe. Have a great day!
