Here is my soup for this weeks Souper Sundays
I have been making this soup since I was 12, it's one of my families favorites. One of my favorite things about this soup is how easy & simple it is, as long as I have a bag of potatoes and some kind of milk I can make this soup. Now if I were making this just for me I would add celery, the kids (& Hubby) out-voted me on this one. Darn it!!
McFarland's Potato Soup
1- 5lb bag of Potatoes, peeled and cubed
1c. cubed Ham
1c. shredded Cheese
2T. Alpine Spice/ or Salt & Pepper blend
Place your potatoes,ham & corn in a large pot. Add enough water to cover those ingredients. Bring to a boil, turn heat down, stir in the parsley, simmer until the potatoes are tender about 20-30 min.
Remove from heat add butter, cheese and cream- you can substitute marg, for the butter, and reg. milk, half 'n half or canned milk for the cream.
Now I get to use one of my absolute favorite kitchen gadgets- my immersion blender- here it is- The Star *******
Here is the soup before I use my Star-
Here is the soup after-
Nice & thick & creamy, yum.
