Its a Christmas Miracle!

Well, its more like a cooking miracle. Anyone who knows me, knows I am not a cook. I can make spaghetti, french toast, and pancakes. Not a lot of options. I am also afraid of meat. I am always afraid I have not cooked it properly, and that I will make everyone sick. So Nik cooks the meat. So....we don't often have meat. We survive mainly on cold cereal (me) and frozen dinners (Nik) and eating out.

Well, a couple days ago I was blog surfing and found this easy recipe for Cheesy Potato Soup. Now, I LOVE cheesy potato soup. And so does Nik. So I knew it was just a matter of time before I tried it. Since I was off early yesterday, I figured it was the perfect time to try my hand at soup making. The only things we were missing were the potatoes (important) and the onion.

From start to finish, it only took half and hour. And it was delicious! Best soup I have had in a long time. Very thick and creamy. Nik ate all the left overs before the night was through.

This is where I found the recipe. A big thanks to Little Birdie Secrets for sharing their ideas with us. Please give it a try and let me know if you make any cool changes to it!
(oh, that is not my picture of the soup, but that is basically what it looked like)
