NOTHING LIKE SOUP AND A HAPPY BIRTHDAY

December 17th is my first born, Bill's birthday. Happy Birthday Bill and your favorite oatmeal cake will be waiting for you. He already got his gifts from us.
On a cold day, there is nothing like homemade soup. The other day, I made potato soup.
I make my Mom's receipe and it is so easy to make.


Potato Soup:

Peel and dice as many potatoes as you want, dice an onion, add salt and cover with water and boil.
When the potatoes are soft, drain the water off.
Cover the potatoes with milk and then make a flour and water thickener and turn the fire on as you add the thickener. Add about two tablespoons of butter and if desired, one or two cut up slices of bread. Add salt and pepper to taste and there you have it, ready to eat.

That looks great. I made split pea soup yesterday for Jason and Lily. Tonight I'm making Southwestern Chicken soup!

Nancy, this recipe sounds just like the one Wayne's Aunt Marie gave me years and years ago. I make it a lot during the winter. We love it. I'm planning to have potato soup Friday night when Gordon and Tammy arrive, biscuits, and apple pie.

Hugs,
Barbara/MO

Nancy, the potatoe soup sounds delicious and simple too, I've copied the recipe. We are having very cold weather (31 degrees..no snow) here and this will be perfect for dinner.
Happy Birthday to Bill.
Have a good day....hugs, Linda
