The other day I stumbled across a recipe for potato soup that called for mashed potatoes & cream of chicken soup??? Odd right?
Now this was about an hour before dinner time and I had no idea what I was going to make. Also I had about 2 cups of mashed potatoes left over in my fridge from making Donna's Pierogies, which BTW were really, really good- Thank You Donna!
So I thought why not give it a try. It turned out pretty good. Now the original recipe was from The Ultimate Soup Book from Readers Digest. But me being me I am unable to follow a recipe exactly, I am a tinkerer. So this is quite a bit altered from the original. And there would be a picture but I was feeling really lazy and figured I would take one and add it in here next time I make this. And there definitely will be a next time.
