Fat Friday recipe and THanksgiving Ideas...........

Good morning,
I am still feeling lousy this morning ; just not as lousy as yesterday. lol
Got a few craft projects to work on; I am doing them in assembly line style. :)
I am making baked potato soup for supper. We just had it last week but the recipe was a hit and I got a few requests to make more.

Baked potato soup
4 large Baking potatoes
2/3 cup Butter or margarine
2/3 cup Flour
6 cups Milk
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
4 chopped green onions, divided
12 slices Bacon, fried, crumbled, divided
1 1/4 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
8 ounces Sour cream
Wash potatoes and prick several times with fork; bake at 400° for 1 hour or until done. Let cool. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then scoop out pulp; set aside. Discard skins. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly.
Add potato pulp, salt, pepper, 2 tbsp green onions, 1/2 cup bacon, and 1 cup cheese. Cook until thoroughly heated; stir in sour cream. Add extra milk, if too thick. Serve topped with remaining onion, bacon, and cheese.

serve with loaded corn bread.................
