On the 12th Day of Christmas

Linking up with Cait for the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas for a little Christmas Musings.


This is really more of a musing instead of several.  A couple years ago I gave as gifts a jar of potato soup mix.  I don't have a picture of the jar but here's something like what I gave:

And just imagine it was potato soup inside!

1 qt. jar with lid
Thin ribbon/string/yarn/raffia
Tissue paper/fabric

Ingredients for approximately one jar:
1-3/4 cups instant mashed potatoes

1-1/2 cups dry milk

2 T. instant chicken bullion
(or vegetable if making for a vegetarian)
2 tsp. dried minced onion

1 tsp. dried parsley

1/4 tsp. ground white pepper

1/4 tsp. dried thyme

1/8 tsp. turmeric

1-1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

*Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Place in 1 quart canning jars.

*Decorate with your supplies.  If your lid is 2 pieces place round disc on 1st, then fabric, then outer rim. 

*Print the following instructions on card stock, cut out and attach to each jar.

Potato Soup

To Serve: Place ½ cup of soup mix in a soup bowl and add 1 cup of boiling water.  Stir until well blended.
Makes 6-8 servings.
Mix in bacon bits and cheese to make it loaded potato soup!  Enjoy!!

I got a lot of compliments that the soup was great, and it was easy to put together!
