Time for soup!

I love this time of the year because I love to make soups. My favorite as well as my families I think is my grandmas wild rice soup. I cook it in my large crockpot but you can certainly use the stove.

Creamy Wild Rice Soup

1 cup wild rice (make 4 cups prepared-make sure you do pre cook it according to package directions)

9 strips of cooked bacon (chopped) or 2 cups of cubed ham
2 cans cream soup (I use chicken, grandma uses potato)
1 small onion chopped
1 pound cubed velveeta
4 cups milk
Add cooked rice

Cook until bubbly.
You can also add carrots, chicken, whatever sounds good.

This soup is creamy and delicious and will warm your heart and belly on a cold day.

What now?

It is February and it is raining. Just a heads up if you are reading this....I am participating at the South Metro Polar Plunge on February 28. If you are interested in donating, leave me a comment and I will guide you through.

The girls are skating still and soccer is right around the corner again. Mom is in Texas today visiting Grandma and Grandpa and I wish I was with her. Just wanted to drop a quick note because I am still around. Facebook is an addiction....but I am still learning.

Kisses and Hugs for all on the upcoming Valentines Day.
