Potato soup ....

My momma always made the best potato soup
she always told us the secret was lots of butter, constantly
stirring with a wooden spoon as you added the milk
and she always emphasized the "constant stirring"
So I never attempted to make it...haha

Joanne Gaines has a potato soup recipe in her
new cookbook, Magnolia Table so I decided to try it

and dare I say it.....(momma don't listen) but it could
possibly be better than momma's.
and there was no constant stirring and no 
mega amounts of butter

chopped garlic, onions, celery and carrots

mmm, bacon

diced potatoes...

topped with cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon and fresh thyme

I will be making this a lot this winter

Beach ....

One morning Jacquelyn, Bucky, Avery and I got up
before the sunrise and rode up to Corolla

we had been there before and had good luck with
some great shells and sea glass

It wasn't the case this time but we enjoyed
walking the beautiful beach and watching the sunrise

the whole week the water was so warm and clear...just
a wonderful time
