Here comes another winter weekend, which means it's time for another comfort recipe.
Do you remember Shoney’s Restaurant? I think it might be a cousin of Bob’s Big Boy (or something similar).
My family and I used to go to their breakfast buffet whenever we had out-of-town relatives visiting, and for me, that would, by itself, make up for all of the irritations I experienced, like having to wait to use the bathroom, being forced to stay at the table and listen to the adults talk, etc.
And later, as an adult, I used to treat myself to lunch or dinner there, when I lived in Virginia. That was before the age of Kindle, so I would bring a book to read, order sweet tea, potato soup and then, apple pie for dessert.
It’s actually how I came to like potato soup. Before then, nothing with soup as a surname was very appealing to me.
And now, loaded baked potato soup is one of the most comforting lunches or dinners I can think of.
But to be honest, I have never tried to make it myself, from scratch. I have given the grocery store soups that pleasure, but I’d really like a good recipe that would be delicious but easy.
Here’s one I might try. Maybe you and your family would like it, too?

After you try it, maybe you will add it to your meal planning rotation this winter. If you want to steep yourself in warmth and comfort as this year begins, a bowl of soup is a great way to do it.
Have a great weekend!
