Yesterday was a busy day and not particularly my favorite day ever. I’m trying to approach bad days like the British from now on. Instead of having anxiety attacks and debating throwing myself from a bridge I am instead understating the badness of things. The day? It was? Regrettable.
I decided to make this Potato Cheddar and Bacon soup from the Kraft.com website. A few weeks ago some friends mentioned the Kraft website as a place they find quick to make and serve dinners. That’s what I want on a busy Monday so the soup seemed like a good trial.
Here are the ingredients.
Please note, I winced at the suggestion of frozen hash browns in my soup. I also laughed heartily at their thought that two strips of bacon would be enough so I made six. But then Maddie and I ate four of them, so two strips for the soup had to be enough.
I thought briefly about throwing a cauliflower puree into the soup (white!) but then decided to give myself a break on the deception this week.
The soup was very simple to put together but I put lots of pepper, a little salt and some parsley in it. I also, instead of just sprinkling cheese on the top put about 1/2 cup into my soup mixture to make it a little thicker.
So, did they eat it?
Logan: Don’t put any green onions on it, or extra cheese (because I’m trying to weigh zero pounds) and….I like it!
Max: Soup may be my favorite food. I love it but am a little suspicious of the green flecks. When told it was a little parsley he said: “Parsley is weird.” So are kids so keep eating captain. And he did.
Madison: Ha ha! I’ve outsmarted you finally! I am eating at a friend’s house!
Melissa: I really liked this. It was light for a dinner entree but we usually eat light at dinner anyway. I might chop up some broccoli and add it (Not Pureed!) next time because everyone in our family likes that vegetable and it might make it a little more filling. It took me just about 20 minutes to have this soup on the table.
I predict Madison will hate this meal if she ever gets to try it. You know, because she likes potatoes, bacon and cheese, but not that way.
