First Day

Boy did I feel old sitting there interviewing my classmate next to me. Our first assignment was to meet someone new and ask them a series of question to get to know them better with the finally result making a tag name for each other. I asked her how old she was. "18" she replied. Oh please don't ask me my age I thought after I had gathered my thoughts. Well at least she had siblings older than me. haha

I won't normally put receipts on here well just because I do not cook a whole lot and when I do it's pretty much either very basic(hello my husband is indonesian, chicken and rice are a common thing around here) or I make it up and I do not have time to write it down. BUT I do have one today. And more Bali pics. The last I promise. :)

My Potato Soup, was perfect for the cold rainy day

Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 5 servings


1-3/4 cups diced peeled potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated milk, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese


In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, onion, celery, broth and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup milk until smooth; stir into potato mixture. Add the remaining milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in cheese until melted.

Mmmm, it was good
