It’s finally soup weather!
Well, in Southern California it’s occasionally soup weather. But that doesn’t stop us – we love it! It makes such a fast and easy warm meal!
I’m sharing one of our favorite recipes today – it’s a Loaded Baked Potato & Ham Soup. Super hearty and yummy – and easy to make!
My kids love this one too! Sometimes we even have it in bread bowls. I love it with some sourdough bread!
I mean, with ham, pototoes, bacon, cheese and sour cream – what’s not to love?!
When Carton Smart sent me some yummy ingredients to try out in their environment-friendly cartons, I knew just what I wanted to make! Especially since the chicken stock they sent is the exact brand I normally buy. Handy huh?
They also sent me Organic Pumpkin Puree and Jellied Cranberry Sauce. These will definitely get used in the next couple weeks!
I knew (since I buy it anyway) that it was easy to find chicken and other broths in cartons, but I had no idea that you could find other holiday ingredients in them as well! I love the idea of being able to find organic ingredients in environmental cartons. Here’s some info on how to Become Carton Smart!
