There's something about chilly, rainy days that make me want to eat soup! I'm not sure why I love soup so much...but I do! So I looked at what I had in the kitchen and started thinking.. I almost gave up because I didn't think I had anything for soup. Boy was I wrong!
I had some turkey bacon left over (it was on sale. eh.) and I had some ground beef. I always have cheese.. Hmm..
So I cooked my "bacon."
I then added diced onions and minced garlic.
I browned my hamburger.
I added salt, pepper, and this special seasoning...
I had a couple potatoes so I cut them up and threw them in.
And I threw in this block of cheese!
Just kidding. I shredded it first.
I mad a roux for thickening.
And voila! Bacon cheeseburger soup!
It was pretty delicious. Paul loved it too -- and he said he doesn't even care for soup! I'm doing my best to be the next Soup Nazi from Seinfeld. :-)
I absolutely love cooking! Tomorrow we are going to a BBQ and I'm thinking about what I should bring, and we have a potluck on Sunday that I'm excited about too! Guess what I'm making?
My Olive Garden soup. :-)
