Take a deep breath....

Breathe....I'm so so tired. I just got home from helping Mr. Mom detail a car for his brother who is out of town. Mr. Mom is helping him out so in turn I was recruited to help. Which I don't really mind, it just meant spending time together. So we cranked up some classic rock ("I saw her today at the reception"....any of you remember that one, or am I showing my age?) and got started! It took about 2 hours. Not to bad but glad to be home. I'm considering it my workout for today! I know some of you are saying "that's not enough" but in my book, today it is....LOL! Oh, and Mr. Mom said he would even give me part of his pay. Um...did he think I was helping for free??? tee hee

I also want to thank you all for commenting on Moo's blog! I can't even begin to describe the smile on her face when she saw on the comment love! She loved it! We will be coming up with something soon for her to blog about. I told her she needed to put some thought into it. Stay tuned.... You ladies are the best! xoxoxoxo

Now, I promised y'all some recipes! Here you go:

Loaded Potato Soup

8 medium-sized potatoes
2 cans of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 can Campbell's Cream of Potato Soup
10 oz. heavy whipping cream
20 oz. milk
3 tsp. butter/margarine
4 oz. (1/2 package) of shredded cheddar cheese
2 slices of Velveeta cheese
Bacon bits to taste (1/4-1/2 cup or so)
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Salt & pepper to taste

Peel, chop, and boil potatoes until soft. Mash 1/3 of potatoes, set aside. Mix soup, cream, milk, butter, chili powder and Velveeta slices in large pot, heat on medium heat until hot. Whisk mashed potatoes into soup. Stir in remaining potatoes, cheese and bacon bits. Let cook at least 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Serve.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits (like Red Lobster)

2 cups of Bisquick baking mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter or margarine - melted
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Parsley flakes - as needed

*Combine Bisquick, milk and cheddar cheese. Beat with a fork
*Spoon onto a lightly greased cookie sheet
*Bake in 450 degree oven for 8-10 minutes
*Combine butter, garlic and parsley flakes and pour over hot biscuits after pulling out of oven
