Homemade Goodness

I'm so proud of myself...  Last night I (and my hubbie of course) made homemade potato soup for the first time!  That may not be a big deal for most, but the hubby and I are making an effort to cook more and eat less junk.  We both lead extremely busy day to day lives with us both teaching/coaching.  It's been a hard three years, but now we are forcing ourselves to take more time!

Last night was the first time we tried a family soup recipe.  It was actually quite simple, and it was realllllyyyyy yummy!

Homemade Goodness
I'm getting hungry just looking at it!

The soup was pretty easy to make with a list of simple, easy to find ingredients (I'm not a "fancy" girl)

Ingredients:
Shredded Carrots
Finely Chopped White Onion
Finely Chopped Green Onion
Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
Chicken Broth
Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes
Cheddar Cheese
Chopped Turkey Bacon

I'm pretty proud of the hubs and I making a effort to do more for ourselves, and not only did I make the food, it is really good!

Yum, yum... time for lunch!
