Baby it's cold outside!

A little TOO cold, especially since there is no snow. Here in PA we had highs in the teens with wind chills of single digits at the warmest. Now I know, you'll tell me that people in North Dakota didn't even see zero as a high. And I will put it to you that anyone who actually lives there either a)has Eskimo in their bloodline or b) is a special brand of crazy.

BUT anyways, since it was so cold, I was in the mood to make some soup. I found a recipe for Baked Potato Soup (go here: soup recipe) over at PW's Tasty Kitchen site. It. Was. Delicious! And I got to use my brand spankin' new dutch oven (Christmas present!).

Here's the soup simmering away (have to own up, Daddy took this picture):

Mmmmmm.... cheese.....

While at the store, I found ciabatta loaves that you finish baking at home. So a nice, hot, crusty loaf of bread accompanied the soup and it was yum-o (plus I loved taking a pic of the texture)!

And finally, the soup all nice and plated (bowled?)

Makes me hungry all over again looking at those :)

Stay warm!

  1. Yummy! That looks so good! It has been crazy cold here too. I live in Alabama and it isn't suppose to be this cold here. I think the high today was in the 20s. That is just too cold for the south!
