Sorry I forgot to post yesterday. I fell asleep on my couch around 10 and didn’t wake up until 1 a.m. Oops! Gotta love it when your body decides it needs sleep, whether you’re going to give in or not. Anyway, here’s what I was planning to post yesterday.
I’m not sure I’ve ever had baked potato soup, in fact I’ve never been a huge fan of baked potatoes. But for some reason, when I stumbled across this recipe for a healthier version of baked potato soup, I suddenly wanted to try it. The only problem was, it called for an immersion blender which I don’t have. I probably could have called Brittany and asked her to use her Macgyver-like skills in the kitchen to help me figure out a way around using an immersion blender. But truth be told, it just seemed like too many steps and I didn’t want to try it that badly. so I forgot all about it.
fast forward several months. One day recently while on facebook, I saw a link to a post by Ruthie from The Chronicles of Ruthie Hart. she had posted a recipe she’d found on Pinterest for crock pot baked potato soup *cue angelic music* Let’s just say that lately, “crock pot” has become the magic word for me. I just love forgetting that my dinner for that night is already cooking until I walk in the door and smell it cooking. And this recipe is not only delicious, it’s literally only two steps (if you chop the onions ahead of time or buy them pre chopped). You have to try this recipe asap! (I followed it exactly)
