Bacon Potato Soup

Bacon Potato Soup! Baby, it’s cold outside! Nothing hits the spot more than a good soup. Matt made this bacon potato soup this evening for dinner and it was amazing!

 

 

Matt being out of school while I’m still in is awful! All I want to do is go home and hang out with him. However, it is nice to come home to a clean house and dinner made. Today, he went on a little shopping spree and bought this cute new bowl.

He claims we need more cute bowls for the blog. I was pretty happy about it until we came home from Cooper’s birthday party. Right, when we walked in the door, Matt set a bag right by the new bowl and it knocked it off the table. He swore a little, which is rare.

He would die if he knew I was posting this but it’s so funny I had to share! Anyways, I told him to go back tomorrow and buy the bowl again! Give this soup a try it was awesome!
