I love soups.
Any kind.
Hot or cold.

So when fall comes around I am always on the hunt to try some new ones.

While shopping on the Beckman 1802 website I came across this Roasted Garlic and Potato Soup recipe and had to try it!

My table is set for just the two of us - no need to share this soup as it was so tasty!!

I served warm rolls with this hearty soup...

...and we ate in the dining room.

I set the table with matching blue checked bowls...

...and a bread plate, all purchased many, many years ago at the Christmas Tree Shoppe 

These would actually be a nice compliment the new, Limited Edition Taylor FETE bowl:

This Fete Bowl is handmade and hand painted in Aurora, NY and will be signed by Rebecca Proctor, Creative Director at MacKenzie-Childs.

I served the soup with this large silver spoon that Mom passed down to me!

I anchored the soup bowls with my 38 year old Corelle luncheon plates and MacKenzie-Childs enamel dinner plates, and placed the serving bowl on top of my Courtly Checked compote....

and I used Pottery Barn flatware.

My hand painted candlesticks held battery operated candlesticks from Ikea.

I followed the recipe from their website,

...and only the only thing I would add is some more spicy seasonings...

...pureed it in my blender and added a few cups of stock...

..and heated it quickly on the stove....

...and I must say, it was delish - very garlicky and creamy!
And I served it with garlic dinner rolls:

I highly recommend this recipe and it can be found HERE

  1. Looks delicious, Patti. I thought the bowls were MKC, great complement to the bowl, you're right. I love those Corelle dishes - such work horses, and light to handle.

  4. Oh! That sounds just delicious, Patti. I love the bowls and the whole table setting is just so very pretty. I have been on a soup kick, too, I made a big batch of corn and bacon chowder last night and just finished the last bowl of it watching the Packer game here. xo Diana
