It is a good day for cooking soup,  it is 10 am and still only 30° here in Southern Georgia, I am so ready for summer already, but in the mean time I will survive and I am going to make my Cheesy Potato Soup for dinner today, this is guaranteed to warm you up an to make you feel all warm and cozy on this cold winters day: Enjoy, I know I am going to.

Hearty Cheesy Potato Soup

5 cups peeled and diced potatoes
1½ Tablespoons grated Onion
2½ Cups water
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 Tablespoons of Margarine, I use real butter
1 12-Ounce can evaporated Skim milk, I use 2% milk
1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

Combine potatoes, onion and water, salt and pepper, cook 8 minutes or until taters are tender,

Remove from heat, drain off half the water, Add butter, milk, and cheese, return to heat and cook on low heat, stirring until cheese if melted, pour into soup bowls and serve with Italian bread, crackers or what ever you choose, we like the soak the bread.. Enjoy and hope it suits your taste buds I love it. Also you can use all low fat and low sodium in this.
Then for dessert try this wonderful Orange cake with, Cream Cheese/orange frosting.

1 Box of yellow cake mix, instead of using the recommended amount of water replace it with the orange juice from a fresh squeezed orange, I think I used 3  oranges to get the cup and half of juice. Then follow directions on your package.
When cooled use half bag of confectioners sugar, and about 8 oz of cream cheese, milk to get consistency, then top with coconut, oh this so moist and good, makes a good variety of a plain old cake.
