Creamy Potato Soup {recipe}

This content has been sponsored by Inmar Intelligence and Midwest Dairy. All opinions are mine alone. #UndeniablyDairy #gotmilkrecipe

Good morning! My family loves milk! We go through 4-5 gallons a week. I have 5 kiddos. So that's probably why. ;) We love milk & cereal, a big glass of milk with pb&j, smoothies, milk & cookies, & of course, a big mug of warm hot chocolate on a cool fall morning is the best. I also use milk all the time in baking & cooking as well. Milk is definitely a staple in many, many of our family recipes. We love making homemade muffins & cakes & soups & sauces that all call for milk. One of our favorite family traditions is pound cake crumbled up in a glass with milk poured over it. My mom has the best pound cake recipe. Delicious!

Every year when the temperature cools, my family’s need for comfort foods made with milk always goes way up! Especially with the drop in temperature, the need for something warm, yummy and made with milk always finds it’s way to our menu. ;) These type of recipes always hit the spot with my family. Annnnd that is even more true this year. We could all use something warm & yummy to distract us from all the craziness going on right now.

Today I am excited to share one of my family’s favorite recipes. This creamy potato soup recipe that calls for milk along with potatoes, cream of chicken soup, onion & cheese, & served in a large bowl topped with more cheese, chopped green onions & bacon bits is the best. It taste like a creamy, melt in your mouth loaded baked potato. Yep! It’s that good! You can make this recipe in the slow cooker or on the stove. It's one of our family's favorite comfort foods when the weather cools. It's delicious! :)

8 Pumpkin Crafts

Goooooooooooooood morning! Raise you hand if you busted out your fall décor (including all your cute pumpkins!) as soon as the weather started to cool a couple of weeks ago??? I love decorating with pumpkins. Our front porch is full of pumpkins right now! I might of gone a little over board last week when we picked some out. haha! I love that you can keep pumpkins around from now until Turkey Day, too. It’s not too late to add a few pumpkins to your fall décor right now. :) Annnnd today I am excited to bring these 8 Pumpkin Crafts to you that were linked up over the last several {wow me} wednesday parties. Remember this week’s party is still going on. Feel free to swing by here to check it out. Buuuuut first check out this very pumpkin-y feature post. Enjoy! :)
