A stolen recipe...

It may be 86 degrees outside, but this family loves soup. And I found a wonderful (read, easy!) recipe here for baked potato soup a la Outback. I made it last weekend and it was a hit, even with Bac-o's in place of bacon and no cream of chicken soup added. I have to be careful around here....they tire quickly of things they beg for. I have a half a pan of baked ziti in the fridge as a testament to this peculiarity. For some unknown reason, my children will only eat leftovers if I heat them up for them or if they live in the refrigerator in a styrofoam container brought home from a restaurant. Please do not write me and suggest that I buy styrofoam containers to try and fool them into thinking homemade leftovers are actually restaurant leftovers. They know. Don't ask me how I know this, suffice to say, I know this. Now Dan will eat leftovers. Unfortunately, I caved into Ben's request for baked ziti with meat in it, thus effectively eliminating the one person in the family who might have actually eaten it. Back to my original thought about the potato soup. I think I can maintain interest in this batch as I have purchased REAL bacon for sprinkling on top and that  is supposed to be my magic ingredient to keep them coming back until it is finished. I will then refuse to cook this for several weeks. I know, it's crazy but that's the way it works around here. And I know, too, that it's all my fault they are this way.....
