Recipe of the Week: Potato Soup
By the way, I am submitting this post to a few carnivals. I had a tough time deciding which one to particpate in, so I decided to try a few. I think I'm still going to use "Recipe of the Week" in the title though, or maybe I'll come up with something else.
Anyway I'd like to say a big welcome to everyone who's visiting my blog for the first time via those blogs. I just love sharing recipes, and I hope that by participating in these weekly events, I can not only get new ideas to try but also pass some good ideas along, and make some new friends at the same time.
1 bag hashbrowns (thawed) (I believe it's a 1 lb bag)
1/2 stick of margarine
2 cups of milk
1 can cream of mushroom OR cream of chicken soup (I've used both)
1 small onion (chopped, optional)
Directions: Saute onions (if using). Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low. Cooks in 1 to 2 hours on low. (3 or 4 hours if hashbrowns are still frozen at the start of cooking) Serve with cheese and bacon bits.
Tips & Suggestions:
-The last time I made this I had some extra chicken broth in the fridge, so I added some to the mixture. I believe I added either a half a cup or a full cup. It turned out good.
-By the way, my crockpot cooks super fast, so if you have an older model, then this may take a little longer to cook.
Now for the memes...I plan on posting my link to the sites listed below. Normally I'd post their icons at the top of the post, but since I found more than one place to post it too, I thought that would look a little cluttered at the top of the post. I had never actually thought of placing the same the link on more than one carnival, until this last month with all the different Christmas events.
And then I was looking around at some of the people who post for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, and I realized that some of them were posting their link for more than one event, so I decided to do the same thing...I guess this means that if some bloggers decided to jump off a bridge, I'd have to do it too! (As long as the water's not too deep, and they're serving cake & cookies below.)
Not sure if I'll put the icons up every week...maybe just the links, and I'll see how these icons look in my sidebar. (And sorry if these are aligned all funny, I've worked & worked with it, but it just keeps formatting itself....does anyone else have this problem?)
