Chef Oscar's Potato Soup
Truly, the Loaded Baked Potato Soup at the Carnation Cafe on Main Street is one of our all-time favorite meals in the Disneyland Resort. On most days, Chef Oscar Martinez will be going from table to table talking to guests and greeting them. He is a Disneyland icon. He's been at Disneyland since 1967. On this particular day he came by our table and sat down next to me and just chatted with us for about fifteen minutes about all kinds of things. He signed copies of his Loaded Baked Potato Soup recipe and gave us some pointers for making it taste just right.
The layout is based on a sketch from my friend Susan Stringfellow's sketch blog, Sketch Savvy.
This is her Two-Page Sketch #6.
I thought the colors in the Afternoon Tea line from Scrap Within Reach would be just perfect for these pictures. It was a girl's day out at Disneyland and all three of us had worn our deep plum shirts.
I haven't done it yet, but when I get time, I'm going to shrink the recipe down and put a Mickey tab on the top and hid it behind the picture of me with the soup.
