Chicken Salad on Croissant and Loaded Baked Potato Soup for Souper Sunday

I'll bet there are many turkey soup posts this weekend in the U.S.!  I am going to be the rebel and post about a chicken salad sandwich and loaded potato soup, not that we didn't have some turkey but hey.... let's go crazy.

This isn't homemade but it is inspiration for me to duplicate this soup.  Hopefully I can do that and post in an upcoming Souper Sunday.  Doug met me for lunch one day this past week and we did the easy thing - went to a restaurant so we could eat, talk and then run a few errands.

One of the things I like to do is duplicate a meal/dish that we have when eating out.  I did that with Linguine Pompeii from a locally owned Italian restaurant. Just winged it and created the same dish.  That's fun for me.


This soup was such a hearty bowl of comfort food on a chilly day.  I need to make a version that isn't so heavy on the bacon but just as creamy and cheesy. Certainly there are other folks who enjoy duplicating a recipe and tweaking it to their taste, it's a cool challenge and so rewarding when it turns out well.  So, coming up I hope to share a loaded potato soup recipe that's all homemade!


This year we were supposed to be at St. George Island but thanks to storm damages we are home.  Still, it's easy to adapt and as long as I am off work and enjoying good food and company (Doug and Aja) I am a happy camper.

Join in for Souper Sunday if you can.  Check out Deb's Roasted Broccoli and White Cheddar soup this week, looks delicious!

I like chicken salad sandwiches and potato soup and both look really good. I'll be looking for your recipe posts.

Using menu ideas from restaurants is a really good idea. I also go to the prepared food counter at my market before I shop and get ideas for what to make from unprocessed, fresh ingredients!

Baked potato soup is sounding better and better to me, the more I hear people talk about it. I think I'll have to try it soon!
