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!

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 Mamma’s Lasagna

Standard

Here is every thing we are having for dinner. Lasagna, Corn and Garlic Bread. Well all the in ingredients. Here is the recipe:

1 box of Lasagna Noodles

1 or 2 lbs of hamburger ( or what ever you would like )

Garlic ( as much as you like ) put it in while frying the hamburger

1 can of sliced olives

Cottage Cheese

Spaghetti Sauce

Cheese

Cover with foil

Bake at 425 for 45 min.

 

First put some garlic in the pan with the hamburger and fry it.

 

Then drain the hamburger and while you are frying the hamburger you can

 

Grate the cheese. Now I used Cheddar and Jack Cheese.

 

Here the Lasagna Noodles are cooking.

 

Now I got whole black olives and I sliced them to save money.

 

I just had to show you my Pampered Chef can opener. I love it!!! It works great.

 

Here is the Cottage Cheese. I have to tell on my self. I opened the Cottage Cheese and stirred it and I seen these little Yellow things in there and it was pineapple. But I used it anyway and you could not taste it.

 

After I saw the Pineapple I read the name on it just a little to late!

 

Here is my work station.

 

Here we go!

 

Put some sauce on the bottom of the dish.

 

Just spread it all over the bottom of the dish.

 

Lay the Noodles on the sauce.

 

Put more sauce on the noodles.

 

Then put some hamburger. I make 2 layers so I use half of the hamburger on both layers.

 

Then you sprinkle on the olives.

 

Now the Cottage Cheese. I just put some on it and then spread it around with a spoon.

 

Here comes the Cheese.

 

After the Cheese spread more sauce on the cheese. Do the same for the next layer Noodles, Hamburger, Olives, Cottage Cheese, Cheese and Sauce. For the top cover the last layer with the noodles, the rest of the sauce, the rest of the olives and the rest of the cheese.

 

After you bake it at 425 for 45 min. this is what it looks like. And it taste even better!

Thank you so much for reading my blog. Have an awesome weekend.

Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

Standard

Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

I got the recipe from my Mamma!!

1 can of Green Enchilada sauce or Red do what ever you like.

Corn Tortillas

grated cheese ( I uses cheddar and jack)

1 to 2 cups of sour cream

Onions and Olives if you like

Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 min.

Here it goes!

One day I will do it right 🙂 The right way is to take a picture of all the ingredients. Then tell you how I make it. Well this is me frying the hamburger.  Now at this point you can add onions to fry with the hamburger or you can use them raw. I used them raw this time. Next time I will fry them.

So you take the green enchilada sauce and put some on the bottom of the baking dish. Cover the bottom then on top of that put the corn tortillas. I put 8 on the bottom of my I have a big dish I think 8 by 13. After you grate the cheese add 1 cup to sour cream to the cheese and stir it.

After you put in the tortillas in you spread the cheese and sour cream that you mixed together. It’s ok to use your hands to help with the spreading.

Then put half of your fried hamburger on this layer.

If you do not fry the onions with your hamburger then you can sprinkle the raw onions on the hamburger.

Just a closer view.

Then add more sauce on top of all that. Then you start all over and add your tortillas, cheese with sour cream, hamburger and onions and olives if you like. And then the sauce.

Then put the rest of the sauce on top. You should have 2 layers of everything else.

Then you cover the top with as much cheese as you like.

And you bake it at 350 for about 30 to 35 min. As you can see we love cheese!

I hope you make this for your family they will love it. Everyone in my house loved it. My son told me twice that he really liked it. My daughter Tiffany said she wanted me to fry the onions next time. So I will be making this again.

I hope you enjoyed my blog. Thank you for taking the time to read it. Have a great day!

Pork Tenderloin

Standard

This is a pork tenderloin and boy was it yummy ;P I had bought a Pork Tenderloin from Costco and it was twice this size. So I cut it in half and got 2 meals out of it 😉 When I made the first one I did not care for it. So I found a better recipe and I’m going to share it with you 😉

1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing dry mix. Sprinkle it over the pork.

1 Cup of water. Pour that over the pork.

3/4 Cup of red wine. Pour it over the pork.

Garlic. I put about 4 cloves grated. You can put what you like.  We love Garlic 😉

Soy sauce. Not sure how much. I just poured some in I would say about less than 1/4 cup. But I like it salty.

Pepper

Cook it all day in a slow cooker/Crock pot! Delish!! 😉

Along with the pork we had Fried potatoes. They were very big potatoes from Costco 😉

As you can see I love shopping at Costco 😉

Here are the potatoes bathing in some butter with salt and pepper.

All done covered with Cheese! Just how we like it 😉

We also had some Asparagus. We let that cook covered, in some oil and Garlic butter that I made myself 😉 along with some salt and pepper.

Here is my garlic butter I made. I let the butter get soft then I grate garlic in it and stir. It smells so good.

I spread the garlic butter over this awesome Sourdough bread. Then I sprinkle Cheese over that and bake 7 min. @ 350. I wish I would have taken a picture when it was done. But I didn’t ;(

And here it is on my paper plate 😉 I’m going to get some better plates so next time it will look beautiful 😉

Thank  you for reading my blog. Have an awesome day!
