Potato Soup

I made potato soup for the first time a few nights ago! I didn't take great pictures but wanted to show you the few I did take. I used this recipe which was easy to follow. The recipe turned out great! It wasn't the healthiest soup in the world (at all) but it tasted great-just like a baked potato. Jeff and I don't normally eat heavy foods so our bellies were very full afterwards! It isn't something I would make or eat often but it was nice to enjoy on a perfect fall evening together :)

Lots of bacon. Lots of butter. Lots of cream. Lots of goodness!!

Our dinners have been quick and easy recently since we have been so busy with photography and marathon training, but this night's dinner was not quick! This soup took a while to cook but the end was worth the wait :) We enjoyed it while watching Up All Night, one of our new favorite shows, together.

If you haven't made potato soup yet, I suggest trying this recipe. Jeff and I have been crazy busy between traveling to PA to see my nephew, our photography business and marathon training. We are up to 19 miles...can you believe it? We can't. I am very anxious about the race but am hoping that my adrenaline pushes me through to the end on race day! I'll leave you with a few pictures we took yesterday. We recently upgraded one of our cameras to a Canon 5D Mark II so had some fun with the camera and a new lens yesterday at a nearby school/park...

This pup gets so much love it's ridiculous...

Off to watch the Giants!!! We haven't spent a weekend at our apartment for a while so it's been nice to just relax together today. Hope you are having as great of a day as we are...

I have a very easy and somewhat healthy potato soup recipe that my mom always made for us a kids. You cut up the potatoes leave the skins on boil til tender. Add in some low fat or skim mile,a little real butter and some American cheese cook til all is combined. Very tasty.
