Now that I work from home, I am trying to get in the habit of eating lunch at home and eating something healthy. When I worked outside the home, I went out to lunch almost every day. That is a very hard habit to break! I found that if I didn’t have something that I looked forward to eating that I would either skip lunch (and then snack on junk later in the afternoon) or find a reason to go out for lunch. Lately, though, I have gotten in to the habit of making a big pot of soup for dinner and then eating the leftovers through the week for lunch. Last night, I made chunky potato soup. It was delicious last night (and a big hit with the whole family) and today it made the perfect warm lunch for a cold day (the picture above is from our walk to school this morning…brrr).
You can add and subtract ingredients from this soup and it will still be delicious. The end result was a pretty thick soup. If you like it thinner, just add more water at any point in the process. If it thickens up too much after being in the refrigerator, just add a bit when you reheat it.

The bacon, cheese and sour cream are optional but definitely kick this simple soup up a notch. Evan gives its bacony flavour two thumbs up!
