Tasty Tuesday

I'm a day late due to my internet tower being down and out, makes you realize just how much you depend on the internet. But a day late is better than nothing, especially since the soup is on! I love a big ole bowl of hot soup on a cold winter day, nothing warms you up like soup does. Growing up, the only soup I ever ate was chicken noodle so my taste buds were sheltered, but not any more! Canned soups are out and homemade is in, have you seen the salt intake on canned soups? Making your own soup is better for you, alot cheaper because you can usually get two meals from one pot and you can experiment and make up your own, like I do!

Our favorite is potato soup, and each pot turns out different for some reason, but the main recipe is below created by me on a very cold winter day. Soup simmering on the stove, combined with fresh bread hot from the oven is a perfect day no matter how cold it is outside.

Potato Soup by Sue

6-8 good size potatos, peeled and cubed
1 onion, cut up
1 can pepperjack soup ( cheddar or nacho cheese can also be used)
1 can creamed corn
1 can carrots, drained
2 stalks celery (cut into bite size) or 1 tsp. celery seed
1 c. milk, may need more
garlic, pepper and salt to taste

Cook potato's and celery till done, drain, add carrots and mash. In soup pot add potato's, carrots, corn, cheese soup and milk, blend well. Add garlic, pepper and salt to taste and simmer till hot and thick. More milk maybe needed to thicken soup to your liking. We like it thick, almost like a chowder. Top with minced chives. Serve hot.

I've also added chopped ham or bacon a time or two, but this standby is nice for a meatless meal on a cold day. Soup season is here! Enjoy and feel free to share your potato soup recipe with us.
