I love Potatoes!

Is it any wonder, I used to live next door to potato fields. Mashed potatoes are my #1 hangover and comfort food. (more like comfort food these days, my hangover days are long gone ;)

So, Friday I got a wild hair after getting a wrap from Roly Poly and some potato salad and soup for lunch.

Baked Potato Soup
I decided to bake a few extra potatoes at dinner, then Saturday afternoon I made this recipe.

Baked Potato Soup
Nothing better than fresh cracked black pepper, extra cheese, bacon and green onions on top and Herb, the biscuit by the side! It was awesome and soooo bad for me, I used real cream!
Off to see if there are leftovers for lunch tomorrow, or did one of the crumbsnatchers I live with ate it all!!

Oh, you evil woman. I LOVE potato soup...

And since you are a potato fan (as am I) - check out the blog "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" and take a look at her recipe for roasted garlic mashed potatoes. OMG. Best. Ever.

Oh yum. Roly Poly was one of our favorite things when we lived in Fayetteville. You just made my stomach growl mentioning it. We even have a little stuffed Roly Poly guy hanging around the house somewhere.

Wow, talk about tempting pics! Potato, cheese, bacon, could it be more delicious sounding? I don't think so (off to steal that recipe).

You are killing me with those photos! My absolute favorite dish is wonderful homemade potato soup - and I don't make it very often due to it being so bad for me. However, I think you just pushed me over the edge and I now NEED to make it this weekend. :)

The yarn is gorgeous, but the soup is to die for! Potatoes are the world's most perfect food.
