I was in a hurry, and not sure what to make for lunch before Bulldog Man came home for lunch. I decided to make potato soup with the last 4 potatoes I had left in the cabinet. I cleaned the potatoes, chopped them up and placed the potatoes in a pot of chicken broth. Then I added 4 cups of water, 1 carrot, 1 celery stock, ¼ of chopped onion, pepper, and salt (to taste). After all the vegetables were cooked, I added 1 can of evaporated milk. Stirred well and brought the temperature of the burner down to simmer until ready to serve. For toppings on top of the soup, I fried up bacon and pulled out the shredded mild cheddar. There you have it folks, potato soup (yes, I know I forgot the chives as a topper). Not really, lol…..I just didn’t have chives in the house.
|If you like a thick broth use cornstarch or flour to thicken|
After reading a post on Country Living in the Ozarks on oatmeal bread, I had to make some. The post and recipe is here. The bread is great, and the recipe gets a thumbs-up from Bulldog Man.
