2-3 lbs. all purpose potatoes, peeled and rough diced 1 large yellow onion, peeled and diced 4 cups chicken stock 5-6 bacon slices, cooked and diced 4-5 tablespoons bacon fat 1/3 c. flour 1-12oz. can of evaporated milk, low-fat 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese 1 tsp. salt & 1/2 tsp. pepper Chopped chives as garnish
1. Combine potatoes, onion, chopped bacon and chicken stock in crock pot and cook on high 3-4 hours.
2. On stove, heat the bacon fat until hot and stir in flour to make a roux. Stir constantly until it turns a nice light brown color. Add the evaporated milk and stir. It will thicken quickly!
3. Pour roux into crock pot, add sour cream and cheese and stir. If you want thicker soup, you can break up some of the potatoes before this step. Cook on high for 15 minutes to combine flavors.
4. Ladle and garnish with chopped chives, if desired.
When the Cricut Joy launched in mid-February, I embarked on what would become an almost daily live video series highlighting the Joy’s many features. These live videos, which happened on Facebook and were rebroadcast on YouTube, became quite popular, especially during the self isolation of Coronavirus. After a few more weeks of testing times, we settled on a schedule for the series and a name: Cricut Chat.
Cricut Chat is a daily live video show on Facebook, approximately 30 minutes long, and broadcasting Monday through Friday at 9am. We will also have a Cricut Date Night program on Saturday nights at 7pm, also on Facebook. You are welcome to join me and a bunch of other Cricut-crazy folks any day as we learn about all the wonderful things you can do with a Cricut.
Whenever possible, the program will be rebroadcast on YouTube and Facebook.
One area I left out of this programming is my blog. Since many people still come to visit my blog every day, I have decided to post a weekly summary of what was discussed in Cricut Chat and on Cricut Date Night.
Here are the videos from the first week of Cricut Chat:
Monday: SVG Cuts Umbrella Gift Bag
Tuesday: Lori Whitlock Pen Organizer
Wednesday: “M O M” Trifold Monogram Card from Cricut Design Space
