New Recipe: Cheesy Tomato-Vegetable Soup

I have been trying out lots of new recipes lately and this one was sooooo yummy! It is from Perry's Plate. My family loved this Cheesy Vegetable Tomato Soup. You need to go to this site and try some of her recipes!

I also tried the Brethren Cheese Bread. It is yummy! I have to admit, I didn't really like the bread with the Tomato Vegetable soup, but I made Potato cheese soup last night with a recipe from and it was delicious with it! I know there are no pictures of the Potato Cheese Soup, because I totally spaced it and forgot to take pictures...but trust me, it is delicious!

I am including some pictures of the Tomato Soup and Brethren Bread. Here is the recipe for the Yummy Potato Cheese Soup:

Potato Cheese Soup
6-8 large baking potatoes
2 cups milk (I use Evaporated milk)
4 cups Chicken Broth
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup butter
8-12 stripes bacon, cooked
1 cup sour cream
8 oz. Cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste

Bake potatoes until soft, then peel. Mash or cube the potatoes depending on the desired consistency for the soup. (I just peel my potatoes, then chop them in half and boil them until done).

In a large soup pot, combine butter and flour to make a roux. Cook for 1 minute, then slowly whisk the liquids.

Add salt and pepper, potatoes, cooked bacon, and cheese. At the last minute, stir in the sour cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
Soup will be thick. Add milk to reheat.

Each time the soup is reheated, it gets better!

This soup is WONDERFUL! Enjoy!

Etsy Shop Feature: Bushel and a Peck Co.

I was on Etsy today, using the Pounce feature. I do this a lot! I love to see shops on Etsy and what is selling. I came across this shop I have never seen! It is called Bushel and a Peck Co. It is the most adorable shop I have come across in a long time! You have to check it out. I love the name of her shop! It reminds me of a song that I used to sing to my kids sometimes when they were small!
Jessica sells the cutest onsies for little babies with cute little applique's on them! Included some of my favorites above. I love that little Giraffe! It is soooo cute! Here is some information about Jessica and Bushel and a Peck Co.:

My name is Jessica and I am the seamstress/designer behind Bushel and a Peck. My goal in starting this adventure was to find a way to stay home with my two little ones and contribute to my family financially. By nature I am a creative person, add that in with my love for children’s clothing and you get my totally adorable appliqué tees! I love the whole process of designing an appliqué, from sketching the design to mixing and matching the perfect fabrics to make it a wearable piece of art. As a parent I understand the joy that comes from dressing your child in something fun and unique. Everything in my shop is made to be practical, comfortable and fun to wear any day. My hope is that everyone will enjoy them as much as I do!
