Potato Soup

I love the Potato Soup my mom makes - it's a great and easy meal on a chilly day.

(random, we have bowls with decorate stripes around the rim, and plain ones - the kids call the plain ones "naked bowls" and refuse to use them.  So here's my soup in a naked bowl)

Well, I was taking dinner to our church missionaries, and normally I just package things up in a discarded cool whip container or something, but I didn't have anything on hand.  So I thought a little harder and dug out a couple of mason jars - so cute!!  Soup in one, salad in the other.  Minimal effort, great presentation.

I love my crockpot because I'm semi-productive in the morning, so that's when I throw it all together.  Productivity goes down as the day goes on, which is bad for dinner making.

So, there's no "specific" recipe, but here's the gist:

--peel and chop 5-6 potatoes into cubes.  More for more soup, less for less.
--cook and dice a package of bacon
--pour the following into the crockpot and cook on low all day (maybe 6 hours?)
2-3 cans of cheddar soup
1 can of fiesta cheese soup (normally this only comes in name brand)
if you want more soup, sometimes I add in a can of cream of mushroom or cream of potato
some milk and/or water to thin out the soup to the desired consistency
1 package of frozen chopped broccoli
the prepped potatos and bacon

Yum!

I LOVE Cream of Potato soup too. Always gives me great memories of being a kid, although I don't think I make my mom's recipe. Mine has just morphed through the years. Thanks for sharing yours...the cheese and bacon sound amazing, blessings! Nancy

Yum! I want to add carrots and celery, I bet that would be good! Also I want it to be less than 90 degrees here in Houston so I can make this haha!

The mason jars were a perfect idea! It looks all fancy now! ;)
