Cream of Potato Soup

After several very warm days, 50 degrees this morning felt quite brisk. Some creamy potato soup sounded really good, so I whipped some up for lunch and am sharing the recipe with you. Hope you enjoy!

“Do you have a kinder, more adaptable friend in the food world than soup? Who soothes you when you are ill? Who refuses to leave you when you are impoverished and stretches its resources to give a hearty sustenance and cheer? Who warms you in the winter and cools you in the summer? Yet who also is capable of doing honor to your richest table and impressing your most demanding guests? Soup does its loyal best, no matter what undignified conditions are imposed upon it. You don’t catch steak hanging around when you’re poor and sick, do you?” Judith Martin

    I love this recipe! I’ve been making it for years. It’s my favorite way to eat potatoes. Well, the other day, my mom who is picky when it comes to healthy food and does not usually try things I have made, saw the big pot of potato soup I had just finished cooking sitting on the stove. She said that it sounded good and wanted to try it. She got a bowl and put a tiny bit in the bowl to cautiously try it to see it she liked it. She said it was delicious and went back to get more. Yay!! Thanks Jennifer!
