Taste Testing of Potato Soup.

Dec 14/11: Well Mom and Pat had the soup for Supper last night along with some Grands biscuits and they both loved the soup. I can't comment on the soup as I only had a small taste of a biscuit, which I really enjoyed.

Tonight, soup was on the menu again and Mom commented to Pat that she thought that it tasted even better the second day. Again, no taste testing for me, maybe next time.

Take care

Easy Crockpot Potato Soup

Dec 12, 2011: Mom was looking around something called Pinterest, she came across this recipe. Pat is stopping at the store tonight and Mom said they will ‘throw’ it in something called a Crockpot and will have it for dinner tomorrow. Here is the list of ingredients and directions.

1 - 30oz. bag of frozen, shredded hash browns {Mom used Ore Ida}
3 - 14oz. cans of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1 pkg. cream cheese {don’t use fat free. It WON’T melt!!!}

In a crockpot, combine everything EXCEPT for the cream cheese. Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat. About 1 hour before serving, add cream cheese and keep heated until thoroughly melted. Serve with cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, green onions, or whatever else you think would be good!!

Mom will be back tomorrow and let you know how it turned out.
