I am excited about two things today. First the weather has turned much cooler and less humid. I really like the summer and temperatures in the 80s but when school starts back and the pool water starts to cool down, I am ready for cooler temps! Today, it feels like fall! I found today’s recipe as part of a Disney group I belong to and have had it printed to try for several years! The other reason I am so excited is EVERYONE loved the Kiebasa Potato Soup!. I even heard a “This is the bomb” We did decide that some fresh homemade bread would definitely make this soup better! The kids also said it would be a good snow day soup! Here is a simple but delicious recipe, let me know if you try it!
-3 or 4 pounds of small red potatoes
– 1 Kielbasa sausage
-2 cans of cheddar cheese soup
-2 cans of cream of potato soup
– 1 cup of milk
– 1 cup of sour cream
-1 cup of cheddar cheese shredded
-1/2 cup of bacon bits
I used my casserole crock pot for this but I am sure a regular crock pot would work.
Chop potatoes and sausage into bite size chucks and mix together in crock pot. Combine soups, milk and sour cream in a large mixing cup and pour over the potatoes and sausage. Top with cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Cook on low for 6 hours until the potatoes are soft.
Serve with warm bread.
The official count is
ONLY 1 more recipe to go! I actually have pulled out several to try over the next couple of weeks ! One goal achieved this year!
Last week we ended switching around several days because Baseball started! I am so excited but it does bring a new level of complexity to our lives and schedule. Zach and Kendall start in person school 2 days a week. In some money saving news, our schools are going to provide breakfast and lunch for each student free until December 31st 2020. Both Kendall and Zach are excited because eating at school is a treat for both! We will save money by not packing lunch and we also will receive take home meals for the days they are not in school. Hoping to establish a good routine very soon.

This week it is back to reality and back to menu planning. Zach and Kendall will start in person class two days a week starting next weeks so we are slowing going back to a busy life. Another change this week is that because of a change in funding, the kids are once again receiving free lunches and breakfast delivered via bus. I am not sure how this will look next week when they are in school two day but definitely something to enjoy not stress over! Guam is three nights this week and today (Labor Day) is my last day off until November.
