 This is really belated, but I wanted to post this so I would remember next year.

Our Super Bowl celebration included lots of good, but not good for you, food.  I slaved over a vast amount of from-scratch chicken wings and potato skins.  By from scratch I mean FROM SCRATCH, including homemade sauces.  I even had to butcher the wings and was left with 7 dozen wing "tips." I hated to throw them out.  Since you know I was serving the wings with celery and carrots, I had lots of veggies too.  I figured I had the makings of a great stock pot:

While that simmered away, I was working on step one of the skins, which is a good long bake.  By the time the potatoes had baked and cooled enough to work with, the stock was just about perfect.  I pulled the tips and skimmed the fat.  Then I threw the potato insides right in.  Everything was so soft that I mashed it with a potato masher (no immersion blender needed)!

It made the most luscious potato soup just right for a cold early February day.  The added bonus was I didn't have to worry about making lunch for the family on top of everything else.  I thought it was quite clever and a "tip" to remember next time I  make wings!   Now that is a souper bowl of soup for before the super bowl.
