Potato Soup

Our church serves a Lenten Soup and Sandwich each Wednesday evening during Lent. (Yup, this post is REALLY long overdue since Easter was a MONTH ago...)
I have always been in awe of these ladies who cook soup for 150 people...and this year I decided was going to be one of those ladies...I decided to make a Potato Soup recipe I had made for a friend's Birthday bash. The recipe can be found here. I know that its nearly getting too warm for soup, but in case you're in the mood I would DEFINITELY suggest this recipe...totally YUM.

The part I found most intimidating was the bacon...for 150 people it said I needed 112.5 strips of bacon...yikes! So, I did something I hadn't done before...I broiled the bacon. It was easy, so fast. Here is the bacon in the various stages. (Too bad I haven't learned to photograph meat looks kinda nasty!)

Needless to say, by the end of that Wednesday my feet were super tired (I had also had youth group thrown in there). I was SO thankful there were loads of people who had pitched in so that I could get it all done...and I can cross "Make soup for 150 people" off my bucket list. ;)
