A Sneaky-Peeky At Chef Boyardee...I Mean... Bowden

Neeley loves to help in the kitchen. I think I've said that before. And last night she asked to help make one of her favorite recipes.

Chef Bowden loves to do anything that a kid can manage in the kitchen. Here's the full-length picture just so you don't think our stove is short and made for kids...

I gave Anna Banana permission to help clean the floor during the process but she did more begging than anything else.

Then we sat down to this delicious meal...

Yummy potato soup and cheese toast. And it was good! :)

Neeley Beth's Favorite Potato Soup

6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1-2 onions, peeled and diced
2-3 carrots, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cans low sodium fat free chicken broth
1 tsp. basil
1 1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/4 C. flour
1 1/2 C. fat free half & half or whole milk

Bring the first 8 ingredients to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk flour and half & half or milk together. Add to soup mixture. Simmer on stove top until veggies are tender. Top with cheese, bacon, sour cream, or any other fixin's you like.

(Picture disclaimer:
Yes, that is a puzzle on my dining room table; Yes, that is Cafe World on Facebook on the computer in the background, and No Neeley does not have wild hair in this picture-her popcorn plant is sitting on the window sill behind her and just so happened to appear in this picture.)

Hope you like the soup as much as we do! Btw, this is our 200th post. Wow!
