Fall is in the Air
I woke this morning to a bright sunny day with cooler temperatures and a nice crispness in the air. It is a glorious welcomed day. You see we still have had temperatures in the upper 90's this week. I have decided to treat my family to a pot of potato soup. I began with 8 scrubed russet potatoes peeled and diced into medium size chunks. Then dice two stalks of celery and a medium size onion. Then I add two teaspoons of minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Cover all with chicken broth and cook until the vegetables are tender. Then I add 1 can of cheddar soup and enough milk to get you desired thickness. I chop green onions and and cooked crumbled bacon and put on the top of each serving. I make a skillet of cornbread and serve with it. My family can really make this stuff disappear.
