Suddenly Saturday

Ah, still no grocery ads. I didn't shop for groceries this week. We went to and I picked up a few Christmas presents and a few grocery items, it that was it. I always buy sour cream and butter at Costco. butter is cheaper if you get it in pound bricks. It is really easy to cut off a short cube and it uses less butter. tomato paste was .52 cents. Onions were 4 dollars a bag.

On a non food note, they have ponchos for little girls....flower power...for five bucks. They have a hood.

BLT Potato Soup

3 slices bacon
1T olive oil
6 tsp minced garlic

4-5 new potatoes, scrubbed and sliced
3 cups chicken broth

2 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
Parsley or chives

1) Dice the bacon and fry in the bottom of a Dutch oven, remove bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a brown paper bag.

Discard most of the fat. Add olive oil. Reduce heat and cook the onions until soft.
Add garlic, salt and pepper.

Add the chicken stock, 3 cupsnwater, and the potatoes.
Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes until they are tender. Add the tomatoes and cook 10 minutes longer.

Puree the soup. Add water if necessary to make the right consistency.

Guarnish with bacon and parsley.
