This sounds yummy. There’s nothing like a baked potato with everything on it. I make my own version of this soup too. Although you can’t beat our local BBQ joint’s baked potatoes smothered in brisket along with the other stuff!


Sounds so yummy! I have so many good recipes and photos to post – now if only I could find the time! How did I use to fit blogging into my schedule? I just can’t seem to do it lately!
Hope all is well with you. I miss stopping by every day to see what kind of fun stuff you have happening over here!


Oh, this sounds so good! My husband and son will love it! I think we’ll be eating it either tonight or tomorrow at lunch. Thanks!

And, thanks for visiting my blog. I love reading all the comments, so thanks for leaving one :O).
