Potato soup served over a piece of super corny bread

Wow. It’s been forever since I’ve posted a recipe up here. I really have been cooking. I promise this is true. Apparently not anything very interesting though.

So this past weekend I had a Hostess & Customer Appreciation Lunch for my lovely lia sophia ladies and decided to go all homemade on the main course with corn bread and potato soup.

Super Corny Bread

based on the Double Corn Bread recipe from Better Homes & Garden’s red plaid cookbook

a piece of super corny bread

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil or melted butter
2 1/2 cups corn

Stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder & salt. Set aside.

Add the 1 tablespoon butter to your pan (I used a 9×13 pan) and place in your oven at 400 degrees until melted then remove and use to coat the bottom and sides of the pan.

In a separate bowl mix together the eggs, milk & oil. Pour into flour mixture and stir until moistened. Fold in corn (I used leftover cooked corn) and pour into pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Estimated 15 pieces @ 146 calories a piece.

Crockpot Potato Soup

Homemade potato soup in the crock pot

4 cups water
6 medium sized potatoes peeled & diced
2 medium turnips diced
1 cup diced fresh celery
1/2 cup diced fresh onion
1 1/3 cups diced carrots
1/2 cup diced ham
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cheddar soup
2 tablespoons dried dill
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Slice, dice, etc. all of your ingredients. I used mostly red potatoes with a couple Yukons in the mix as well and smoked ham. Throw, well, pour all of it into your crockpot/slow cooker. Mix. Set to high and let cook for 5 hours. Refrigerate overnight. Cook on low for 3 hours or until warm. Enjoy.

Estimated 14 1 cup servings @ 196 calories a serving.
