Friday Fun.... in the Kitchen...Bacon and Cheddar Potato Soup

Its Friday... and amidst all the fun with Em Wood's hotties, and watching the birds (lovely red cardinals) outside my windows, I'm preparing a most delicious potato soup for dinner tonight.  I've completely lost all motivation for sticking to any schedule, so thank goodness Em, The Goddess of the Prompt, will be reminding me to post my story on Mondays and to actually write the thing on Saturdays,   because I'd hate to miss out on any orgies...

So, here's what's scenting my kitchen right now...

Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Potato Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups peeled and cubed red potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup diced, cooked bacon

Directions

  1. In crock pot, add onion, potatoes, salt and pepper, and chicken stock.  Cook four hours on high or eight hours on low. 
  2. Puree cooked potatoes with broth in blender.  Return to crock.  Stir in milk,  sugar, cheese, and bacon. Return to heat, on high, stirring frequently, until cheese melts and everything is adequately combined.
  3. If you want a thick soup, add a tablespoon of Wondra, stirring it in thoroughly. 
Garnish with a bit of crumbled bacon, a dab of sour cream, some diced chives, a sprinkle of cheddar, or even a few chopped tomatoes... maybe even broccoli.
Enjoy!

Story Orgy

Hey! Guess what?  The Monday morning writing prompt has exploded!  We are now up to full blown orgy status with the addition of Hank Edwards, Monika Krasnorada, and Havan Fellows to Em Woods and me.  And, we've brought in the lovely artwork of Jade Baiser to adorn our efforts and inspire our writing attempts.

So, every Monday, you get not one, not two, but five sexy stories to brighten your day!

And other than the fact that it is still snowing... not much else to report-

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
