Last Night I cooked up some potato soup In my thermos.
put the following in a 1 cup measuring cup, 1 potato diced, 1 teaspoon of chives, 1\4 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of bacon bits (real ones), 1 tablespoon of diced onions. two tablespoons of cheddar cheese.
mix and place in a 2 cup measuring cup, and microwave 2 tablespoons of butter, 1 tablespoon of flour, 1 cup of milk heat to boiling.
add the other ingredients, and heat to boiling, and stirring. The potatoes will still not be cooked but heated.
dump everything in your 16 ounce thermos, and let set, the thermos will cook the soup as it sits over the next 4 to 5 hours just in time for lunch.
I had my wife to taste test it this morning, and it was pretty good.
you could also omit the salt and add some chicken bouillon. also fresh cracked pepper would work well with this.
