This is a crock- pot soup. I found the recipe in Southern Living years ago and have made it tons of times. Garnish with some shredded cheese and crumbled bacon and you can't go wrong!

4 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 small onion, chopped
2 14oz cans chicken broth

1 pint half and half
Toppings: shredded cheddar, crumbled bacon, and green onions
Layer sliced potatoes in lightly greased 6 quart slow cooker; top with chopped onion.
Stir together chicken broth and seasonings and pour over potatoes and onions. Cover and cook on high 3 to 4 hours or until potaoes are tender. Mash mixture with potato masher, stir in half and half. Cover and cook on high 20 more minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars

This recipe came from Southern Plate. It was originally posted as M&M Oatmeal Bars. This fall it was posted with a "fall" twist. Butterscotch and cinnamon. They are yummy and use baking mix so they are super fast to make.
Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1 egg
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine everything but chips in a bowl. Stir in chips and spread into greased 8x8 greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely and cut into bars.
