Yesterday I mentioned we cleaned out the attic this weekend. And by ‘we’, I actually meant Mr. SP and the teenager. Our attic happens to be outside in the garage and, hello, it’s freezing out there!!?? My Texas blood is thin…I start to whine when the temps dip below 50-degrees.
So I figured the least I could do was make them a warm, comforting dinner, and what’s better on a cold, Sunday afternoon, than a pot of soup? The Simple Potato Soup has already been in heavy rotation around here, so I decided to kick it up a bit with a Southwest flavah. (That’s like flavor, but with more flair and sass.)
As soon as the boys walked back in and caught a whiff of this yumminess, they forgot all about my cowering inside from the cold.
This is a thick and hearty soup, that sticks to your ribs, and warms your belly. It also sweet-talks your man into going back outside to clean the gutters. I caught the kids practically rubbing their faces in it, too…so it’s a family winner.
Do you have recipes that can make your man plow through a To-Do list? What comfort foods do you make when it’s Alaska-cold outside? Stay warm, lovebugs!
