I Heart My Crockpot!

I have been using my crockpot about twice a week in the last month! I don't get home until after 6 and with a baby, a crockpot is magic!! I have been trying a bunch of new recipes but I think this one is my current favorite!! I now add a little cooked bacon when I add the cream now!

Hearty Potato Soup

6 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (2 1/2 pounds)
2 medium onions, diced
2 carrots, thinly sliced
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans low-sodium fat-free chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups fat-free half-and-half

Combine first 8 ingredients in a 4 1/2-quart slow cooker.
Cook, covered, at HIGH 3 hours or until vegetables are tender.
Stir together flour and half-and-half; stir into soup. Cover and cook 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve in Italian Bread Bowls, and garnish, if desired.

Retiring Gus

As many of you know, we started calling Peter, "Gus", just a few weeks along in my pregnany. We he was born, many people still called him that including us for a few months. That is the only way the Kahn boys refer to him. Less and less I have been calling him that and now it is time to retire the nickname. Labels on posts refering to him will now be under Peter...... Goodbye Gus!
