You guys know cooking is not my mom’s thing, right? Like, she could cook, it’s just not her jam. Girl would MUCH prefer to hot glue gun things or staple gun the ess out of everything. Ole’ Cinbad, she’s a crafter. Her kitchen, it’s for prettiness. Not for messes. Hell, when I made a wedding cake in her kitchen, it probably took a week for her to get it clean.
But like I said, girlfriend can cook, she just doesn’t wanna. No shame there. Cindy’s a soup kind of gal. She’ll make a pot of something to last her the week, and she won’t bat an eye at that stove for another 6 days. One of the things Cinbad always used to make was Potato Soup (also known as “more velveeta please with my bacon, thankyou.”) once again, definitely no shame in that.
And while this isn’t her tried and true velveeta potato soup recipe, it reminds of me of smelling bacon as a kid and praying to the LORD JESUS there was velveeta following it into that pot.
Since my mom is so amazing, there usually was.
Here’s my version of that potato soup. The warm hug of cheddar wraps is fat, loving arms around you and takes you back home. I think all of you can get down with a fat trip down memory lane, right?
- onion - 1, diced
- flour - 1/2 cup
- chicken stock - 1 box
- potatoes - 5
- half and half - 2 cups
- sharp cheddar cheese - 1 1/2 cups
- sour cream - 1 cup
- bacon - 4 strips, cooked and diced
- salt and pepper - to taste
Now if only we could get the ice cream sandwiches to magically show up…
