Busy, Busy Week!

Ok so I thought that my week could not get any busier, and to my dismay it has :( Not to mention that I have a full time job, an etsy shop, and a blog. I have just learned that on Monday night we have a boyscout meeting, Tuesday my son has a Cello concert, Wednesday Boy scouts singing at nursing home, Thursday son has lead in Christmas play....he is Santa :) Luckily I have nothing for Friday yet. On Saturday I have a jewelry party at The Posh in Charlotte. I have sold a few items lately and REALLY need time to create more for the party. Lastly, my birthday is on Sunday, not to mention that I am NOT ready for Christmas yet, also did I mention that I work full time and need to sleep? Thank goodness I managed to get my Christmas cards done and mailed out this weekend.

Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful season!

Cheesy Potatoe Soup Recipe

Here is a recipe for a delicious cheesy potatoe soup.

Potato Cheese Soup Recipe


4 medium large potatoes - I like to use the red ones and leave the peel on
2 1/2 cups petite carrots
1/4 cup green onion, diced
4 tsp better than bouillon chicken or 4 bouillon cubes
2 tsp white vinegar
1 1/4 cups milk
6 Tbsp flour
3/4 cup shredded jack cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
6 slices pre-cooked bacon


•Wash and cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces (peeling is optional).
•Dice green onions and bacon.
•Put 5 cups water and first 5 ingredients in large saucepan: bring to a boil, and cover and simmer 7-10 minutes.
•Whisk flour and milk together and add to saucepan with vegetables.
•Bring to a boil and cook (simmering and stirring bottom occasionally to avoid scorching) 15 minutes.
•Add cheese and bacon for some yummy cheesy soup!
