Image by nkzs

I’m so excited about Plan It, Don’t Panic Week 2! I felt so energized after last week’s challenge–and I got SO many new recipes from the link-up over at Keeper of the Home! (Check out my Pinterest for some of the recipes!)

This challenge is helping to bring some order and JOY back into planning meals for my family!

Without further ado, check out the recipe for tonight’s dinner–Creamy Potato Soup with Veggies–and scroll down for this week’s meal plan!

Creamy Potato Soup with Veggies


  • 8 white potatoes, peeled & diced
  • 4 carrots, peeled & sliced into “coins”
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 32 oz. stock (chicken, ham or veggie)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • thyme, to taste
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • enough water to cover potatoes & carrots

Boil potatoes and carrots until just soft (but not mushy). Add stock, celery, mushrooms, milk and seasonings. Cook on medium-high until soup starts to bubble. Add kale and cook for a few minutes on medium-low. Set on simmer until ready to serve. (I sometimes serve immediately.)

Serves: 6-8
