Easy Baked Potato Soup

These days, I am feeling so tired that I don't even care what a meal tastes like; I just want it to be easy to fix. When I found this recipe in "The Joy of Hospitality" it definitely fit my qualifications for easy: ingredients that I actually have on hand, little chopping, short prep & short cooking time. What I didn't expect was that it would be so good!

Baked Potato Soup (serves 4-5)
2 large baking potatoes
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
3 T. thinly sliced green onion
4 cups milk
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup flour
4 slices bacon, crumbled

1) Bake potatoes at 435 for 40-60 minutes. Cut in half and scoop out the middle. Set it aside.
2) Cook onion & butter in a soup pot until butter is melted.
3) Stir in flour, salt, and pepper; add milk. Cook on medium until thick and bubbly; stir often or it will stick to bottom of pot.
4) Add potato and 1/2 cup cheese, stirring until thoroughly mixed. Break up any large potato clumps.
5) Serve topped w/bacon & the remaining cheese.

Have a wonderful weekend!

p.s.-Please pray for Tali. She's got some weird fever with no other symptoms. Thanks!
