I am afraid that I have distressing news...It is with great regret that due to a recent tragedy in Krisitie's family the Lil Scrappin Mama kit club has been put on hold indefinitely. By request and for the privacy of the family, I am not at liberty to disclose what has happened.

We appreciate everyone's interest in the club and hope to be back sometime in the near future...we hope you all will rejoin us upon our return.

Happy Thursday all!! B HERE! haha No, I am not drinking on the job! It's a short week for me and today is my "Thursday"! How about you guys? Are you ready for the holidays?

On Sunday, I tried out a new homemade potato soup. OH. MY. GOSH. It was sooo good! I wanted to share the recipe with you. This would be so good this weekend on one of those lazy, relaxing days.

Baked Potato Soup
  • 4 large baking potatoes

  • ¾ tsp. salt

  • 2/3 cup butter or marg.

  • ½ tsp. pepper

  • 2/3 cup flour

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • 6 cups milk 12 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled

  • 1 ¼ cups (5 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 8-oz. carton sour cream

  • 1 heaping TBS chicken base (bouillon)

Wash potatoes & bake, 400° until done. Let cool. Cut into ½” cubes – leaving skin on. Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute – stirring constantly. Gradually add milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thick and bubbly. Add potato cubes, salt, pepper, green onions, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, and chicken base. Cook until thoroughly heated. Stir in sour cream. Add extra milk if necessary for desired thickness. Garnish with additional bacon and cheese.

And of course a photo of the finished product! :D

Let me know if you give this a go!

Happy Thanksgiving week all!
