Please Note: I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. 🙂)

I’m going to give your potato soup a try tonight. I don’t have chicken stock, but I have a lot of turkey broth. I imagine that will work just as well. Years ago, I had a friend who showed me how to make a delicious potato bacon soup, but I never wrote it down and he has since passed. I am thinking of cooking the bacon first, and using some of the fat to cook the onions. I remember doing that with his recipe. Hopefully, my family will enjoy it. Thanks!
That sounds yummy–we love bacon! 🙂
I just wanted to thank you. The soup was a big hit. I even followed your menu and made grilled cheese sandwiches with it. I peeled one too many potatoes so I sliced one into chips, pan fried them, and sprinkled with salt. My four year-old told me I make “the bestest meals, his most favoritest meals, and the yummiest food in the whole world.” My husband, who cooks more than half the time, had a good-natured scowl on his face. He asked if he makes good food and my son told him yes, but not the yummiest in the world. lol.
Hahaha! Yeah for Mommy Points! 🙂
