Snow Day!

I have been off work since Monday due to the snow, got to love teaching! Though I am beginning to worry that all of these snow days will end up interfering with our wedding date. Speaking of weddings I really should be using all of this free time to work on the wedding, I guess I'm a slacker. But it is so cold outside the thought of going outdoors gives me goosebumps!

So what better way to warm up than to make some yummy soup for Tripp and I?


  • 12 slices bacon
  • 2/3 cup margarine
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 7 cups milk
  • 4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium heat until browned. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
  2. In a stock pot or Dutch oven, melt the margarine over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened. Stir in potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  3. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Mix in bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted.
  4. Enjoy!!

I really hope it turns out as yummy as it looks! I'll be sure to let y'all know if you should try it or not!

Well now off to cook and wait for the fiance'!
