Our Halloween Tradition

Every Halloween since I can remember my mom would make us soup.  Not any kind of soup, but the same kind every year.  She would make it before we went out trick-or-treating.  When we were older she would make it before we went to parties.  It was always there and I loved it! 

When I got married I made it for Ryan and thank heavens he loved it.  He can be a little picky, so this made me happy!  Since he loves it I have been able to continue the tradition with my little family.  It is super simple and super yummy.  

Sometimes I have rolls or bread on the side, but sometimes I like to mix it up and have the soup inside a bread bowl.  Whatever works, but the soup stays the same.  I LOVE soup.  I especially love it when it is cold because it warms me up.  (I am cold all the time it seems.)  Halloween is the perfect time because there is a nip in the air.  

So do you want the recipe?  I think you do and I think you will love it.  It is the best for picky eaters too.  There really isn't a lot to it so even the pickiest eaters will love it. 

Mother Load Soup

3/4 c. carrots (chopped fine)-2 carrots             1/8 t. pepper
1/2 c. celery                                                      1/8 t. red pepper
8 potatoes diced                                                4 dashes of paprika
1/4 c. onions                                                     4 cans (10 3/4 oz) chicken broth
1/2 c. butter                                                      2 c. half & half
1 c. Bisquick                                                    2 c. cheddar cheese

2.  Drain water and add: butter, Bisquick, pepper, red pepper, and paprika.  This will make a thick paste. 
3.  Remove from heat.  Gradually add chicken broth.  Heat till boiling, stirring constantly for 1 min.
