She can make the best potato soup.
And I think about her whenever I eat it.
Thoughts of my grandma warms my heart even more than this soup warms my tummy. She’s just the sweetest lady ever.
Yes, I’ve had soup on my mind lately. Potato soup, to be specific. Why?
It makes you just want to pull out your ginormous cookbook and make soup all day. You know, the red and white checked album of recipes called Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. I think every girl that has tied the knot must have one on her shelf. It’s a classic. It’s the “Little Women” of the kitchen variety-ha!
Yes, the temperatures have been dropping here and the leaves are just beginning to change. Love it.
So it is definitely time for some soup.
Mmmmm. The cream cheese absolutely makes this dish.
I had two bowls….shhhh.
I think my favorite things about this recipe was the no-peel potatoes.
And the blocks of cream cheese.
And the bacon crumbled on top.
And the use of my slow cooker in the kitchen instead of me.
Ok. So I actually had several favorites in this recipe. It’s that good.
Have I convinced you yet?
Make some potato soup. Think about your grandma. Better yet, give her a hug.
That’s what I’m gonna do.
And take the time to tell her how special she is….. and also thank her for that ginormous cookbook given as your wedding gift. <3
How about you? Do you associate smells and comfort foods with special people in your life?
