" SIMPLY POTATO SOUP"
A DAY OF REST........(Ha)!
Today I did some dusting, Laundry, went to the grocery store......cleaned up tree limbs and took down the outside wreaths and garlands....swept the porch....made a potato soup and worked on the next BOM that will start soon.......so much for a day of rest!!!
Here is another soup recipe that I make often....Simple, but delicious!
SIMPLY POTATO SOUP
6 to 8 russet potatoes
1/2 chopped onion
Half pkg of Bacon
1 stick of butter or margarine
Peel and dice your potatoes . Put in soup pot with onion and enough water to cover potatoes.
Simmer until potatoes are tender. Drain some of the water from potatoes, leaving just a little of the liquid.
While potatoes are cooking, cut your bacon into pieces and saute in a fry pan until crisp.
Drain bacon onto a paper towel to remove most of grease and set aside.
Into cooked potatoes put the stick of butter, salt and pepper and enough milk to cover potatoes.
Bring to a simmer and if needed thicken with a mixture of flour and water . Add the bacon and serve with your favorite crusty bread or rolls.
I use russet potatoes because they seem to give the soup a creamy texture and I love the flavor of russets.
