52 Recipe Challenge: Week #2

This week's recipe is absolutely perfect for the icky, wet weather we've been having. It's warm, hearty, and everything that is right with the world: Loaded Baked Potato Soup from Tide and Thyme. Another winner from Pinterest, this soup starts by making bacon, then using the drippings as your soup base. Yes, that kind of amazing exists.

The recipe calls for the use of a crock pot, but when we made it, we didn't plan ahead for that so we adapted it a little. We boiled the potatoes as we chopped the onions and garlic and then let it all simmer for a bit before the potato mashing step. It came out perfectly! I appreciate having the flexibility of it being a quick meal or a crock pot meal.

The recipe made dinner for the three of us, then four 1 1/2 cup portions for lunches throughout the week. With a little milk mixed in to loosen it up, it reheated just fine. This will definitely be sticking around our recipe book!
