Dinner for a chilly night

My husband is shoveling the lovely, massive amount of snow that is hitting the Midwest and dance was postponed due to weather so I'm making something warm for when he comes in.

The teakettle is heating up so I will quickly share my recipes!

Cheesy potato soup
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
6 cups milk
6 potatoes
1-2 cups cubed ham
8 ounces cheddar
1 cup sour cream

Melt butter and make a roux with thw flour. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly five minutes. Add cubed potatoes and ham. (We always baked the potatoes, cooled and peeled them but it's less time consuming if you use raw).

Simmer 20 minutes, add cheese and sour cream. Simmer until thickened!

Apple crisp
4-5 cups sliced apples
1/2-3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup melted butter

Layer sliced apples in buttered 9x9 baking dish. Mix topping ingredients in separate bowl and add melted butter. Sprinkle on apples. Bake about 30 minutes in 350 degree oven.
