It’s soup weather, big-time. Well, sort of. As I write this, today was actually sunny, and warmer than it’s been for awhile now. In the low 20’s! Tomorrow, we’re supposed be in the low 30’s! Which is just about normal for SoDak in January. But alas, it’s short-lived, as by Wednesday next week, we’re supposed to get smacked with another Arctic blast (thank you so much).
But anyway…It’s still soup weather as far as I’m concerned. And before I go any further, allow me to congratulate Jennifer B. on winning the Progresso soup gift pack!
Back to my soup…Last week, I read about some Bread Bowls that Autumn, the Good Eats Girl had made. As much as I love to make bread, I have NO idea why I haven’t made my own bread bowls before. Actually, in thinking about it, I’m not sure I’ve ever HAD soup in a bread bowl before, to be honest. I don’t know why that is, but I decided I needed to fix that this weekend. Autumn’s recipe looked easy enough, and I had the time to spare while the bambino was off at a birthday party.
And then I decided on some soup. Potato Cheese, to be exact.
With bacon. I did try to lighten it a little, just because I’m stuck at this stupid weight plateau, and have been for going on 2 months now. Of course, I’d be doing a lot better if I wasn’t half-assing the WW program. But anyway…I used yogurt instead of sour cream, cut back on the bacon, as well as the butter, etc.
And it was still good!
The best part was the bread bowl. I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner! Jay and I both had seconds, and while I thought it would be a fun thing for him, the bambino was pouty for some reason and didn’t want anything to do with dinner–Until after he got a time out for continuing to whine after I told him to cut it out. Once he came back to the table, the bread bowl was the coolest thing ever!
But now I have to get work on a sponge for some bread I need for tomorrow’s meals, and finish cleaning up the kitchen. Have a good evening everyone!
