Tasteful OF Tuesday...Link Up

Hello everyone! HAPPY Tuesday, Mondays are always busy for me and i never ever seem to be able to get on my blog. Its a new week which means school starts over and i have to get through all that and get organized and then right now we have puppy classes. I hope everyday had a great Monday and is having a great Tuesday.

On Thursday we have started a tradition, either we to our friends house for dinner or they come over. Last night was our turn to host dinner. So i got creative and thanks to my auntie i made an amazing dinner and dessert! I am here today to share and YOU BETTER TRY IT!!!

Today I am linking up for Taste of Tuesday with Blissfully Miller and Let's Get Bananas
I can share two new recipes I have just recently made. 

Loaded Baked Potato Soup- 

4 Large potatoes ( i used 7 smaller ones)
2/3 cup butter
2/3 flour
6 cups milk ( i used fat free skim milk)
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 green onions, chopped ( i used 5)
1 large pkg bacon bits ( i bought 2 and used a little of the 2nd pkg)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream

1. cook your potatoes. Cut them in half and scoop all potatoes out and put in bowl.
2. melt butter in a large pot, add flour and then gradually add the milk. Stir constantly until smooth, thickened and bubbly
3. stir in potatoes, salt, pepper, 3/4 of the green onions, bacon bits, and cheese. stir and cook little bit longer and then add in sour cream.
