A Loaf of Bread, a Glass of Wine and Candles candles cheese dinner by candlelight food and romance romantic meals soups

A Foggy Day in the ‘Couve

It’s one of those days where being snug inside with someone special is the only way to go. Okay, snug inside after you’ve braved the hordes at the mall and finished your Christmas shopping. Whichever.
So, what’s a romance addict to do? Make soup, of course. Potato soup. Here’s how:
potato soup
For 2 servings of soup:
Ingredients
  • 2 slices bacon, crisp-cooked & crumbled
  • 2-4 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 C chicken broth
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3/4 C shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

Boil the potatoes in the chicken broth 20 minutes, or until tender.

Mash and mix with the broth until the soup is the consistency you like. Season with salt and pepper. Return to low heat and add 1/2 the cheese. Stir until melted.

Serve in bowls topped with crumbled bacon and remaining cheese sprinkled on top.

Serve with crusty bread and grapes. Also candles, or a roaring fire and your favorite mood music.
