**I have partnered with Life of Dad and Idahoan® Foods for this campaign, but my opinions are my own.**
As someone who grew up less than an hour from Green Bay, Wisconsin, I developed a love for the Packers and have been a fan no matter where I lived. Five years ago I moved to Washington state, the heart of Seahawks fandom. My move across the country hasn’t changed my support for my team. In fact, I’ve been able to proudly represent my fandom while watching my favorite quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, make some ridiculous plays. Over the couple of years he’s completed three Hail Mary passes, including two in the playoffs. For those that don’t know, the Hail Mary pass is one in which the quarterback throws the ball up for grabs at the end of the half or the game, hoping and praying (hence the Hail Mary moniker) that one of his receivers can miraculously come down with the ball. It’s an act of desperation and no quarterback in history has ever been as successful at that play as Rodgers has been over the last two seasons. More often than not, the defense knocks the ball down or intercepts the pass. It’s a very low-percentage play that is a last-ditch effort.
Now, the last two Sundays my beloved Packers have played a playoff game in the afternoon and I’ve used that time to fold laundry while watching them emerge victorious each time.
What I neglected to do was give much thought to what I was going to make for dinner. One Sunday my wife ended up cooking something so I was bailed out. The other Sunday she was out of town, so I had to scramble to come up with something at the last minute that was both tasty and healthy. So, channeling my inner Aaron Rodgers I took just five minutes to complete my culinary Hail Mary by making a pot of Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Loaded Potato Soup to compliment a grilled cheese sandwich. My 12 year old son and I enjoyed steakhouse quality soup (minus the steak, unfortunately) within a scant few minutes of starting the meal. All I needed was four cups of water, a pot, and a heat source. Be warned, though, that these soups are as tasty as they are filling. My son and I each enjoyed our soup and were completely full after just one bowl each! Unlike Aaron Rodgers, I didn’t need to literally throw a Hail Mary to become the #KingOfSoup in my own kitchen. Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Potato Soups deliver the flavorful, slow-cooked taste of restaurant-quality potato soup straight to your table.
Filled with real Idaho® red potatoes and red potato skins, these hearty soups deliver exceptional taste and texture in every spoonful. Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Potato Soups are available in four delicious flavor varieties: Creamy Potato, Loaded Potato, Cheddar Broccoli and Three Cheese Chipotle. And, at less than $3 per pouch, these soups are more budget-friendly for a family than a trip to an actual steakhouse. Look for them at your local grocer and see how easily you can transform your kitchen into a steakhouse.
