A good night.

There are few things better than HOT soup on a FREEZING day, so I used the "storm of the century" as an excuse (as if I need one!) to make one of our favorites: "Easy Potato Soup." I know. It's not an overly descriptive name and it doesn't do justice to the taste, but trust me...this recipe is easy peasy. Of course, I didn't take any pictures while I was making it or of the finished product. I was half tempted to share a photo of the leftovers sitting in our fridge, but, let's just say...leftovers don't photograph well.

You may be saying to yourself, "Didn't she already share a potato soup recipe?" And the answer to that, my friends, is YES. However, the previous recipe I shared {here} was for a Bacon Potato Chowder, with a MUCH different taste than this soup. And we love us some taters in this here house!

I should also mention that if you haven't noticed by now, I'm not much of a recipe follower so many of my recipe cards read something like this "some of _____," "a little of _______." You get the picture.

So, here she is. The "recipe" for "Easy Potato Soup."

By the way, feel free to re-name it after you've tried it.

1 lb. ground sausage (we like spicy Italian sausage in this house!)
2 onions, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 a soup pot/crock pot/dutch oven of chicken broth
1-2 large bags of frozen shredded hash browns
2-4 cans of cream of mushroom soup

Add ingredients together, stir, and let simmer all day.

Then enjoy from the comfort of your nice, warm home, while watching the snow fall, and trying to convince your 4-year-old that celery is yummy and that she does like it. Well, that's what we did anyway.

And, if after all that, you are itching for even more snowed-in excitement, give your children cupcakes with chocolate frosting and let them go to town!

At this point, a bath is inevitable. However, if you're still going strong after wrestling three slimy, soapy monkeys in the tub, you might want to lotion them up, throw 'em in some warm fleece footy jammies, then all cuddle up on the couch to watch Rudolph.

THEN you can call it a good night!
