There was a nip in the air last night,making it very chilly here. I decided to make potato soup for our dinner. Then for a special treat I made mulled cider. Steaming hot mugs of cider on a cold night,who could ask for anything more. I thought I would share my recipes. I peel 6 to 8 russett potatoes and dice them into medium size pieces then I chop 2 stalks of celery and a medium onion . I place all this in the pot with enough chicken broth to cover and cook on medium heat until potatoes are fork tender. Drain off any liquid and put back on heat then add 1 can cheddar cheese soup and milk to get thickness you want. I made cornbread to eat with this. For the cider I slice 1 orange and add it and the cider to a saucepan, then add cinnamion sticks and one third cup brown sugar and 1 tablespoon mulling spice. Simmer until it is piping hot. Oh does this make the house smell good. Put in your favorite mug, put your feet up and enjoy!!!!
