Baked Potato Soup

Didn't get a picture because my boys scarfed it up so fast, but I made an insanely yummy baked potato soup tonight. It was a great night for it...cold and overcast

Here's the recipe....

4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
2/3 C. butter
2/3 C. flour
7 C. milk
4 green onions, sliced
1 1/4 C. grated cheese
8 oz. sour cream
1 lb. bacon, fried and crumbled
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

In a large pot, melt butter. Stir in flour. With a wire whisk, stir in milk until well combined. Add potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low for 10 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve.

This makes a ton of soup which I look forward to eating tomorrow for lunch :0)
Enjoy everyone!

I'm not even going to try and play catch up here! Suffice it to say I have been extremely busy and will try to do better and post some things to show you what I have been up to!

I will show you these cuties! Above are cupcakes in a jar that I made for the 4th! The kids loved these and they weren't too hard to make. I will post instructions soon!

I had leftover cake from the cupcakes in a jar so I took it and made some cake pops for each of my siblings families! I think they turned out pretty cute.

farm cake

Recently I made this cow cake for a little boy's birthday.

The customer also ordered some cupcake toppers made out of fondant to go on the cupcakes

I thought they turned out pretty cute so I thought I'd share!

Gift Box Cookies

I made these for my Young Women's lesson I taught on Sunday. It was entitled Preparing to Become an Eternal Companion. I talked to the girls about not only being able to present their future husband with a beautiful package on the outside, but with delightful gifts inside them...learning to Love with a Christ-like love, Serving, becoming productive, being happy and most importantly, keeping themselves morally pure. To see more pictures of these cookies and how I bagged and tied them , visit my other blog.


Snow Trip

Went on my first day trip with the youth on Saturday! It was fun...cold, but fun!

They are such a good group of kids!

There was sledding...

snow ball fights...

making of snowmen...

It was fun! This is one of my darling counselors Savanna!

Group Shot...which I was taking (funny how that always seems to happen, not that I'm complaining) This isn't even close to all of the pictures that were taken, but I can only post so many! Thanks for a great first trip you all!
