yummy good stuff

Ok so yesterday we went to Texas Motor Speedway with some of our Lubbock posse. We always have a good time with them, so I was pretty pumped about seeing them.

We arrive and needed cash to park...something I was not aware of, and therefore not prepared for. So we had to head over to the little grocery they have set up out there to hit up the ATM. We, I kid you not, haven't even been there like 2 minutes and I'm ready to beat the hell out of Redneck drunk bitch in front of us...who apparently couldn't get money from the ATM and felt like screaming "Give me my money you WHORE!" at the machine was productive. Scott reined me in and we got our cash and got out of there.

Moral of this story..NASCAR fans are

Today is my little brother's birthday..he would be 24 years old today. He was killed 17 years ago, that anniversary passed in October. That was a sad day, today we celebrate him. I love you Nicholas. Always and forever.

ok now to the yummy part. I made the absolute best Potato Soup today!

Here's what I did!

Kate’s Potato Soup

Yields: 10 servings
10-12 peeled potatoes, cubed
1 onion, diced
3-4 cloves fresh garlic diced
6 cubes beef bouillon
2 cups milk
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 pound bacon - cooked and
2 cups shredded Cheddar
1.In a large stock pot, sauté onions with fresh garlic in 1 tbsp olive oil.

2. Add potatoes and beef bouillon along with approximately 8 cups of warm water or enough to cover potatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer on medium heat until potatoes are with in 15 minutes of being finished.

3. Add milk and cream of mushroom soup. Use a potato masher and mash to desired consistency. I like mine with a bit of chunk to it, but it's your call. Simmer on low until soup has thickened. About 15 -20 minutes.

4. Serve with bacon crumbles and shredded cheese on top in individual bowls

Please try this and tell me what you think, what worked, what didn't! Enjoy!
