This weeks assignment is to share something we like to make when the weather outside is frightful!
Well I love to make hot chocolate, especially when the kids come in from playing in the snow. I love to have a warm bowl of chili or really anything in the crockpot.
I saw an idea in a Christmas memory book once where during the first snow this family made a bowl of potato soup. I loved that idea, I got this recipe from Homespunhearts last year and we LOVE it!
2 c. chicken broth or water
2 c. diced potatoes
1/4 c. diced onion
salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Bring the above ingredients to a boil and simmer until potatoes are tender.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine:
2 c. milk
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. butter or margarine
Microwave on high for four minutes whisking half-way through. Stir into soup.
Stir in 2 c. shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend is what I use)
Serve when cheese is melted and combined.
