You get a 30 dollar gift card for your birthday when you sign up on their email list, I can not wait to eat here for my birthday this month

So sad about this...

Shade is closing.. it makes me so sad. I loved this store!!!

Last but not least I am so excited to make this tonight! Its raining and this is one of Chase's all time favorite soups I make so I thought I would share the recipe :) I make a few minor adjustments to make it a little healthier such as turkey bacon and fat free sour cream and cheese. But I would recommend trying the real recipe first with out modifications, best Baked potato soup ever!


  • 12 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2/3 cup margarine
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 7 cups milk
  • 4 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed ( cook in oven first)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a stock pot or Dutch oven, melt the margarine over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until thickened. Stir in potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  2. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Mix in bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted.

I think this commercial is hillarious! I think dodge got it right with this one :) And even though my dad owns a dodge dealer ship does not mean im biased in the least :). Enjoy!
