Potato Soup…

17 11 2008

I don’t usually post about food, but today I am making potato soup before I go teach, so that’s what I am posting about.

When the weather starts to turn cold, I love to start making soup. I love soup. I’m not sure why, but I do. I have never liked potato soup….that is, until recently. I know why I never liked potato soup…my grandmother made it all the time and it was runny, made of mostly milk, few potatoes and celery. I just never cared for it much, consequently, for all these years I never made potato soup. A couple of years ago I found some recipes I thought I would try. There are a couple of different ones I use. They are thick, tasty, and have lots of potatoes in them. I love potato soup! (And I love potatoes, as my hips will attest to) I make it a lot too, as soon as the weather cools. My very favorite potato soup recipe is thick with sour cream, but rather bland….but that is because it is meant to be served with highly seasoned, homemade, deep FRIED, croutons. They are seasoned with parsley, garlic, paprika, salt, and parmesan cheese. Are you drooling yet?

I added some parsley and chives for a little flavor….now to make the croutons…I like to use whole grain breads for those. I have some homemade in the freezer.

I have to run now, but I will post the croutons later for your drooling pleasure.
