Potato Soup

WOW...is all I can say.  It surely has been a very long time since I have posted on my blog.  I remember back in the day when I was on my blog everyday and catching up with my bloggy friends. I miss those days...now we have so much social media it's hard to focus on everything!

Thanks to those of you that send me messages...I am doing just fine!  We are busy with harvest right now....well, not right now...it's not a good combining day.

I made POTATO SOUP a week or so ago and posted it on my Instagram and also my Facebook Page. {Click the links to follow me there!}   This is a hearty soup so one bowl is all you will need...it sure was good on a chilly day paired with a bowl of cucumbers fresh from the garden!


Ingredients
2.5 pounds of potatoes, I don't peel them I just scrub them and make sure they are clean, cubed.
1 small onion, diced.
4 cups of chicken broth.
salt...to taste.  It depends on how salty your stock is!
3 tablespoons butter.
1 cup whipping cream.
garnish as desired: green onions, cheese, chives, bacon

Place all ingredients except the butter and the whipping cream into a crock pot.  Cook on low for around 7 hours.

After the potatoes are cooked through I pureed my soup in my Vitamix but you could also use an immersion blender.  I left out a cup or so of potatoes and mashed them a bit so that there would be a few whole pieces. It just depends on what type of texture you want.  Put the soup back into the kettle and add the cream.  Garnish and serve!!

I hope that all my old friends will see that I am posting again...if you did stop by please leave me a comment so I know you were here!
