SUP? All I can think about lately is Soup. Rustic, Hearty Soup. I have been craving it. Between my Chili and Stew obsession, Soup has been on my menu at least once a week. It has been a very cold winter and nothing seems to keep you going and satisfied like big old bowl of Soup.

The recipe that recently caught my eye was this Hearty Crock Pot Cheesy Potato Soup. This recipe is NOT fat-free in any way. It is rich and full of love. It is straight up Comfort Food.


I found this recipe on Cooks.com.

Crock Pot Cheese Potato Soup


Original Recipe from COOKS.COM Submitted by: MamaLJ

5 Idaho Potatoes, Peeled and Diced
1 White Onion, chopped
4 cups 2% Milk
2 Campbell’s Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 1/2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Stick Salted Butter
1 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Scallions, chopped
3 Slices Crispy Bacon
Salt and Pepper, to Taste

In a large Crock pot add potatoes, white onion, milk, cheddar cheese soup and 1 stick of butter (sliced), mix well and cover. Cook on low for 5-6 hours (until potatoes are fork tender). Stir in the sour cream and shredded cheddar, recover and let cook an additional 20 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with green onions, bacon bits and a dollop of sour cream.

Spoon into your Favorite Bowl and Enjoy!

So to really play up my Rustic Soup Day, I planned it around my rest day this past Sunday. So I stayed in my Pj’s all day, put the soup in the crock, and watched The Breaking Bad Marathon while the soup did its thing. It was just what I needed. This recipe makes 8-10 large bowls of soup. So be ready for the Best Part. Soup for days.

I’m enjoying a much-needed rest day today, I have worked all my major muscle groups this week and today I want to rest and just do some light stretching. My hamstrings have been tight and I don’t want to overdo it. I have been reading several articles regarding rest days and working out, and I really see the value in rest days.  I am not training for a marathon or any competitions, I am just training for life, I am trying to be as proactive as I can in my aging process. I know it’s not a guarantee to live a long healthy life, but I sure do like the way it makes me feel.

Working out and eating healthy foods are important, but I also feel that resting is just as important. We need time to get our balance back and that’s what helps keeps us on a healthy pathway. A healthy dose of all are required.
