A delicious soup recipe for a cold day

It has been freezing here lately. Below zero temps.  When it is that cold outside, it just makes me want to put a pot of soup on.  I love any kind of soup, but this one is one of my favs. This is the soup that got my hubby to marry me.  I made this for him on our second date, and after that he was hooked.  You know what they say, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So true.  It is warm, creamy, comforting, and delicious, and the best part, my kids love it!

Not the best pic, but here is the recipe.
Potato Soup
6 medium potatoes peeled and sliced
4 carrots peeled and diced
6 celery stalks diced
2 quarts water
Put all vegetables in a pot with water and cook until tender, then drain
Meanwhile, after vegetables are cooked take
1 chopped onion and sautee it in
6Tablespoons butter
When the onion is soft add
6 Tablespoons flour
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of pepper…more if you like it spicy
Cook together for a minute and add
1 1/2 cups milk
Stir the milk in until thick then add the cooked vegetables
Add store bought chicken broth until soup is desired consistency
Add more salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle grated cheese on top, and enjoy!

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
