It’s easy to make dinner feel cozy with this simple EAT Crochet Placemat and Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups
I am not particularly a fan of cold weather. It’s perhaps a major reason why I choose to live in Texas. Even with my cold weather aversion, I do like one thing that cold weather brings, and that’s cozy weather activities. Snuggling under blankets, knitting, crocheting, reading good books, watching funny movies, playing games with the family, and eating lots of soup.
Soup is something I make on repeat throughout the winter. In fact, I believe it’s practically a requirement that you make a huge pot of soup for days when you just want to feel cozy. Potato soup in particular has become a favorite winter soup at my house. Luckily, I have found the easiest way to prepare a pot full of potato soup, particularly on school nights when everyone is exhausted and just wants dinner on the table right now.
Idahoan Steakhouse® Soups deliver comfort made easy. You can enjoy the flavorful, slow-cooked taste of restaurant-quality soup at home, in literally minutes. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the Idahoan Steakhouse Cheddar Potato Soup, and stir. The soup needs to simmer for about 5 minutes, and that’s literally it! Ladle the soup into bowls and dig in. If you’re cooking for a group as I am, you can even prepare more than one package at a time.
With all that extra time you’re saving you can stitch up a few cozy placemats to really set the mood. For a placemat I thought what better than the word, EAT?
Have you tried corner to corner (or C2C) crochet yet? I loved putting together this placemat using corner to corner crochet. If you already know how to C2C crochet, go ahead and grab the free EAT Pattern. I’ll be sharing much more about Corner to Corner Crochet very soon! I picked gray and mint colored yarns for my set of EAT placemats. The colors feel a bit wintery to me. I absoutely love the texture that you get with corner to corner crochet, as well as the ability to create some really fun patterns. It’s almost like a merging on crochet and cross-stitch!
I like to say that my family’s love of potato’s comes naturally, as my husband’s family is from Idaho. Not only did my husband get seconds, maybe even thirds, on his bowl of soup, the kids all loved it! Idahoan Steakhouse® Soups bring together real Idaho® potatoes with flavorful seasonings and rich cheeses to provide a creamy, hearty taste in every spoonful – all you have to do is add water.
Idahoan Steakhouse® Soups are available in a variety of delicious flavors, including: Loaded Potato, Creamy Potato, Cheddar Broccoli, and Cheddar Potato. Knowing my family we went for the Cheddar Potato. I added in just the slightest garnish of grated mozzarella cheese and a pinch of parsley. While any flavor of grated cheese flavor would do, I just happened to have an abundance of mozzarella already on hand.
Get your soup on, grab some yarn, and get ready to get cozy.
