Potato soup & bread bowls.

If you follow my Facebook page or my Instagram account, you've seen this picture

This was the start of it.
I actually forgot to take an after picture because well, I was hungry & it was good. Sorry guys!

But I was asked for the recipe so here goes:

You will need:
  • Bacon
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 3 medium sized carrots
  • 1 medium onion
  • 5/6 medium sized potatoes (I use 6/7 because we're a family of 5)
  • 1 package of frozen broccoli
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4-5 cups of chicken broth
For garnishment: 
  • shredded cheese
  • green onions

Pull our your crock pot,  I cook mine about 6 hours (so med-high depending on your setting).
Dice up your potatoes and drop them in the crock pot along with the chicken broth and the whipping cream.

Fry up your bacon, crumble it and add it to the crock pot.
Then chop up your onion, celery and carrots, cook them in the skillet you just used for bacon til they're softened a bit. Put them in the crock pot. 


An hour before it's done, add your frozen broccoli.
This is also when you start the bread bowls.

For the bread bowls you will need:

  • 1 package of yeast
  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 1 Tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
 Mix yeast & water.  Let sit for 5 minutes.
Add other ingredients, mix. 
Let rise for an hour!
When the hour is up, preheat your oven to 425 degrees, divide up based on the amount of bowls you need.  (this makes 4 decent bowls and a small one for Owen)

Place glass bowls upside down on a baking sheet- spray with cooking oil,  roll out dough pieces and lay across the bowls.  (Mine only cover about 1/2 of the bowl)

Cook for 10-15 minutes depending on your preferred doneness and oven.  I cook ours about 11/12 minutes.


Pull the bowls out, flip them the right way up onto a plate (trust me)  and fill with soup.  Top with garnishments and enjoy!


This week's good deed(s):  EVERY SINGLE DAY at the school line, I let people in and out.  I smiled politely at people that weren't so polite back.  I tipped the back lady extra good because she was actually nice.  I apologized to people in the grocery line for being in the way even though it was nobody's fault.  I didn't do anything major this week, just had patience and tried to be nice to people.

Also, someone nominated me for Circle of Moms top 25 Southern Bloggers.  I'm seriously excited about this! So spare a vote if you can:
