Thank you Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups for sponsoring this post. Stay warm with this winter with a cozy bowl of soup!
It’s the time of year when I really just love warm comfort food. There is nothing better than staying home on a cold dark evening as a family and being together. The only thing that is better when I can make a meal that is tasty but literally takes me no time to make and impresses the whole family.
Our most recent favorite is Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups which are available in four delicious flavor varieties: Loaded Potato, Creamy Potato, Cheddar Broccoli and Cheddar Potato. This soup gives you the flavorful, slow-cooked taste of restaurant-quality soup at home, in just five minutes- literally! When I can make a tasty meal the whole family loves in a matter of minutes I consider that a WIN! YES!!! I’ll take that one!
One of the highlights of my day is when we all can sit down at the supper table, as we call it in the deep south, and talk about our day over some delicious food.
This time I paired the Idahoan Steakhouse Soup with a quick and easy Cheddar Garlic Biscuit.
Cheese Garlic Biscuit Recipe:
2 cups Biscuit Mix
2/3 c. milk
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Beat these three ingredients for 30 seconds.
Mix 1/4 c. melted butter with 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and pour over biscuits.
Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes
As a family we love being home and calling for a good family date night at home. In the midst of our busy lives we love to come together and do something…set aside distractions such as cell phones or technology driven entertainment and be together.
I get asked often what are some ideas of what we do as a family date night…so I’m sharing…you can tweak these activities to any family/ childrens ages.
- Put a puzzle together
- Have a coloring contest
- Read books
- Watch a movie + popcorn
- Bake a dessert together
- Build towers and houses out of blocks – get them all out!
- Sing and be silly listening to music
- Do something festive according to the time of year i.e. decorate gingerbread houses
- Play board games
- Weather permitting: build a fire outside and sing around the campfire
- Do a craft/ art
- Puppet Show
- Tell stories
The main idea and focus is not how much time we spend together but making that time quality time. It could simply be an hour, but it’s being intentional with that hour/time.
What ideas do you have that I could add to this list?
