A Trip to the Dentist and Potato Soup

I had a visit to the dentist today. Not one of the easy, cleaning and x-ray visits, either. The kind of visit where they use a drill and you come home with an achy mouth and a crown. A little ibuprofren is helping... in the meantime, I'm feeling the need to take it easy on my meals- think soft foods! So, tomorrow I'm going to try this potato soup recipe- sounds yummy and looks easy, so it meets the criteria!

Potato and Cheddar Bacon Soup
Prep and cook time: 23 minutes

Serving size: 2 cups
Numbers of serving: 4

1 tablespoon butter
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
½ cup green onion, chopped (optional)
1 (26 oz.) bag of frozen chopped baked potatoes with cheddar bacon sauce
3 ½ cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped chives

1- In a medium pot, cook onion in butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until soften (about 5 minutes)
2- Add milk and a bag of potatoes with cheddar bacon sauce to onion
3- Cover and cook over medium heat until cheese is melted (about 8-10 minutes), stirring occasionally
4- Add salt, ground black pepper, and chives
5- Simmer 1 minutes and serve

I'll let you know how it turns out!
