      Again, I promoting the ultimate gift from your kitchen! From the proverbial statement, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day…Teach him to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime…” Thanks to the reduced cost of technology, a great gift for a young couple or a person starting out on their own is a crockpot filled with non-perishable items, a recipe, and a gift certificate towards the purchase of the fresh ingredients.

      I can’t tell you how many times that I’ve done this and the recipients were SO grateful! Fill the purchased crockpot with: 2 lb pkg flour, 32-oz pkg chicken broth, and a jar of chives.

      Add a gift certificate for $10 and the recipe for making the meal.

      8 slices bacon into 1/2-inch pieces
      1 onion, finely chopped
      2 tbs flour
      32-oz fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
      3 lb baking potatoes (about 6 large), peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
      8-oz pkg triple cheddar cheese, shredded
      1 tbs cream cheese
      1/2 cup milk
      1/2 cup sour cream
      1/4 cup chives
      Cook and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp.

      Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon, reserving 2 tbs drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels. Refrigerate until ready to use.

      Pour into slow cooker. Stir in remaining broth and potatoes. Cover with lid.

      Cook on low 8 to 10 hours (or high 5 to 6 hours).
      Use slotted spoon to transfer 4 cups potatoes to medium bowl. Mash until smooth. Add 1-1/2 cups cheese to remaining mixture in slow cooker.

      Stir until melted. Stir in mashed potatoes and milk. Cook, covered, 5 min or until heated through.
      Place bacon on paper towel-covered microwaveable plate.

      Microwave on high 20 to 30 sec or until heated through. Serve soup topped with bacon, remaining cheese, sour cream and chives.
