So… you’ve shopped till you dropped and now it’s already a New Year.  If you shopped savvy last year, I’ll bet you saved a lot of your hard earned money —  there were so many great sales and bargains — many of them hard to resist.   For me, it was an even better year because I won a $500 gift card and stretched those dollars with sales, bonus cash, coupons, rebates and other incentives to get all my shopping totally done for next to nothing!   As an example of one of my 2012 bargains, I actually was able to get a crock pot for just 61 cents.

But now it’s now 2013 and maybe time for you (or me) to start shopping for yourself.  The best way to do that is to use this gift card!   Maybe you really need something (think K-cups), forgot something (shoes for your HS reunion), or just want to splurge (nice pair of earrings) – whatever it is you can certainly find it on Amazon.com. 

But first you have to ENTER, and second you have to WIN!  So make sure you enter today!

SOUP NUMBER FIVE:  Ham and Cheddar Soup

This soup started from leftover ham.  Since I have been making so many things into soup – this of course was a natural assumption when that beautiful ham first arrived at our house.  Most people would chose to make pea soup with leftover ham and a ham bone — and I could have also done that, but it’s not a favorite in our house and this one looked so much more appealing.

This recipe originated at Taste of Home Site (http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Cheddar-Ham-Soup) – and has been minimally modified (no peas, for example).

This soup is a little different in preparation from the others I have made and posted about, but I chose it to use because it still looked fast and easy and of course it used up that all important ingredient – the leftover ham.

So I started with chopping, dicing and slicing so I’d be ready to add these ingredients once the roux was ready.  Yes, I said roux and yes, this is the first time that I posted a soup using one.  I have tried to avoid using flour and butter as a thickening agent (using instead mostly olive oil for the butter, and using potatoes to thicken my soups – but sometimes you need a change). 

This soup has potatoes, but we aren’t going to cook this soup long enough to use the potatoes for the thickening, nor are we going to use the blender in any way. This soup is meant to be creamy and chunky!

2 1/2 cups or so of peeled and diced red potatoes (used these because I happen to have them on hand)
2 cups water
1/2 cup or so sliced carrot
1/4 cup or so chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
salt
pepper
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups cooked cubed ham

 Ham and Cheddar Soup

As you can see, in my ingredients picture above, I don’t always use exact measurements when making soup – for one thing, the soup is forgiving, and for the other, there is no way I am going to not add the entire potato (for example) once I have peeled and diced it.

Note: I always place my potatoes in water after I’ve peeled and diced them – my mother always said it would help them from darkening in color – and who I am to question her wisdom.

Directions:

1. In a medium saucepan, combine potatoes, water, carrot and onion. Bring to boil then reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender.

While that is cooking:

2. In another saucepan (large enough to hold the entire batch of soup) – Make the roux.  Roux is simply butter and flour that will be used as the thickening agent in this soup.  It’s not difficult…. basically you …  melt the butter and then stir in the flour until smooth.

3. Once your roux looks smooth – gradually add in the milk, salt and pepper – bring to a boil and let that boil for about two minutes or until thickened.

4. Stir in the cheese until melted. Stir in undrained potato mixture.  Then add the ham… and heat it throughly. 

It’ll look something like this, and I can say without a doubt – it was delicious.

Finished Soup

 

We got our Keurig about 6 months ago. And hubby immediately fell in love with both the convenience of those little “k-cups” but also in the actual coffee it made. He said it was so much better than the drip coffee maker it replaced. So, if you haven’t thought about getting one, or even trying it…. I would recommend you definitely enter here to win one. For one thing, every day there seems to be more and more of a variety of k-cups to chose from — from hot chocolate to all kinds of herbal teas — but let’s not forget the coffee choices — almost all the manufacturers are starting to package their products in k-cups!

So… why wait? enter today!

Tools are a necessary item in every home.

                      Ryobi makes tool choices that you can’t help but love!

I don’t want to sound the least bit partial, because surely women and men can both use tools equally as effectively,  but this is my first tool giveaway  and I do think it really is geared more towards men.  Why?  Men seem to understand that a good tool never “costs too much” and when you have superior tools, you can do a superior job.  We love Ryobi in our home – and have many of their tools!  

This tool set from RYOBI is an excellent set and would be a great addition to any mans (or womans tool collection) ~~ and even better there are going to be 4 winners, so enter today!!
