Cold Day for a Sale

Today was a lot of fun, but very cold! I went the Hinckley Lion's Club sale in Hinckley, Illinois. It was great seeing a lot of people I have not seen in over a year. I was trying to find items we need at the farm for the upcoming season. There wasn't really any machinery there that would work for our operation, but I was able to get some lumber to complete at least one of the hay racks we will need. As I have mentioned in earlier blogs, Sunday's for us are usually spent in church and then family time in the afternoon. However, there are some time constraints this week with seed order deadlines and other issues that may prevent me from being able to attend worship.

I am hoping to be done with the things I need to do early in the morning so I can go to church.  However, it seems like lately things have not really gone the way I have planned. This results in crunch time and I do not like doing things at the last minute. The computer crash this week really took its toll. Now I am playing catch-up! I may have to use Sunday to catch-up. Bummer. I hate missing church. Well anyway, I hope that we will have time for some great food. I love this comfort food kind of soup on a cold day! This is what I was thinking about making:


Golden Cheesy Potato Soup


3 cups chopped potatoes
1 cup water
½ cup celery sliced
½ cup carrot sliced
¼ cup onions chopped
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups milk
2 tablespoons flour
½ pound velveeta cubed
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 cup ham diced

In a large sauce pan, combine everything EXCEPT the milk, flour, & Velveeta. Mix well, cover, simmer 15-20 minutes or until veggies are tender. Gradually add milk to flour & mix until well blended. Add milk mixture to vegetables. Cook till thickened. Add Velveeta & stir until melted. Serves 7
