seems like i'm always a day late...

in honor of yesterday being tasty tuesday, and my heater being fixed and not having to run on emergency heat anymore, and the fact that it is HONKIN' cold in north alabama this week (low last night was below freezing...when they start talkin that nonsense...i just put my fingers in my ears and say "i can't hear you...")

oh yeah...tasty tuesday on wednesday. here is a couple of quick recipes you should have to warm you up quick, fast and in a hurry this winter.

Quick Potato Soup

1 pkg Simply Potatoes shredded hashbrowns (found in the refrigerated section, usually near the bacon at walmart)
1 box chicken broth
1 small to medium onion, diced
1 pkg country gravy mix (not the sausage flavored kind--just the regular white country gravy)

sautee diced onion with a few sprays of butter (or you can use the real thing if you want.) next add in potatoes and cook them until they start to turn just a little (like cooking real hashbrowns). next add in gravy mix and chicken broth. bring to a boil then simmer for 25 minutes. garnish with cheese and bacon pieces.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

1- 8 quart box powdered nonfat milk
1- 2lb can Quick
1 lb box confectioners sugar
1 lb jar coffee creamer

Mix all ingredients in a very large container. To make hot chocolate mix ½ cup mix to 1 ½ cup hot water for an average coffee cup. (This makes 1.5 gallons of dry mix.)

and obviously add marshmallows!!

stay warm, kiddies!!

It IS freezing up here, isn't it?? Cra-Zay! I just got used to fall and here comes winter smacking us in the face. Hmph. My kids have looked like the kid from the Christmas Story headed out to pre-school the past 2 days. I love it! I can hardly buckle their car seat straps!!
