This and That Thursday

I hope every one's having a good Thursday!!! Here in Southern Kentucky it is a bit cooler today.

Oh how I do love our fall mornings. Waking up to that bit of nip in the air. I find it so invigorating. This is one of my favorite times of the year.

The rustling and crunch of the leaves as you walk through them not to mention all the amazing colors as they float past.

It makes me want to cook so many warm comforting foods for my family. Our good friend Pea at http://peascorner.blogspot.com
harvested around 400 pounds of potatoes. I told her I would share my potato soup recipe with her and of course all of you also. I hope you will like it.

6 large potatoes washed, peeled and diced. (I like a large dice)

2 stalks of celery diced

1 small onion diced

1 T. parsley

Cover with chicken broth and cook until the vegetables are tender.

Add 2 cans of cheddar cheese soup ( I would start with 1 so you can gage how much cheese flavor you want for yourselves and then add the other if you want.)
Then add enough milk for your desired thickness. Simmmer for 3 to 5 minutes then serve. It is so good!!!!!

Sounds good. I made an oldfashioned potato soup with leeks but I've never tried a version with cheese.

So when exactly IS your birthday???

Nothin says fall like some good old potato soup or chili! I've never tried the cheese soup in it. Sounds really good!
Have a great weekend!

I too love the cool, crisp days this time of year brings. It just feels so fresh and puts a spring (so to speak! *grin*) in my step!

Mary Isabella,

Yes, I saw where Pea had harvested all those potatoes. They will certainly make a lot of potato soup. ;-)

Thanks for sharing the recipe. That soup will taste good on a cold winter day.

Hope you have a great weekend.
Blessings,
Mary

Hi Mary,
That sounds so yummy! We're hopefully going to have cooler weathers again later next week - high 80's right now but I'm gonna print this recipe and make it as soon as it cools off!
Have a fabulous weekend.
Blessings,
Sandy
