It aint potato soup but Maggie has done good with mashed taters. After boiling them she adds sour cream and nacho cheese dip and some pacanti sauce. Wow are they good. I sure wish Lenore would leave me a bowl of her potato soup in the cannon barrel on the court house square cause her recipe sounds really good too.

Haha! Thanks, Vic. I made that recipe up trying to duplicate the Soupa Tuscana at the Olive Garden Rest. It is my favorite thing to eat there. So the recipe came from a few trials and errors. It sounds complicated but it really is simple to make.

That sure could make the court house cannon a popular spot. Specially this morning; it is cool this morning! It is actually 55 degrees at 8:45 am! Our pal Clod might even show up there for a nice hot bowl of soup.

How were things at Shangra La (sp?)? That looks like a good name for a town in Louisiana! Are you back home now. I have missed hearing any thing from Maggie, hope you are both OK.
Sure feels nice outside.

I believe in keeping it as simple as possible:

Boil cut up potatoes till done. Cook some bacon. In same water as potatoes cooked in add the cooked cut up bacon, some onions (optional---I like that flacked-dried onion), a stick of butter, some milk, some salt and pepper. Cook till hot through. YUMMMY

Hi! I am not sure how this whole thing works but I just saw that
you had a similar recipe to Olive Garden's Soupa Tuscana. I love
that stuff and would love to try to make it. Could you send me
your recipe? I would be indebted to you forever! :)

I made a pot of potato soup yesterday, it was yummy.

I peeled and cut into about 1 inch pieces as many potatoes as I wanted more or less according to size of pot you want. I used about 8 yukon golds but Idahoes are good too. The golds were just on sale.

1/2 onion finely chopped
3 or 4 cloves of garlic diced
1 zucchini grated
1 carrot grated
I celery rib diced
2 or 3 bay leaves
2 TBS chick soup base
2 links of Italian sausage
green onions cut
1 small can evaporated milk
salt & pepper to taste

Bring water and chicken soup base to a boil in soup pot. Add kosher salt and potatoes. Bring back to a gentle boil. In about 15 mins, add celery, carrots and zucchini and bay leaves simmer for 20 more mins.

In a seperate skillet saute the sausage in a little olive oil. When it is almost cooked add the onions and garlic and saute till they are done.

Then I add the sausage mixture to the soup pot and add the chopped green onions. Then I mix some of the hot soup into a small bowl with the milk and add to pot. A spoon or two of flour can be added to milk if you want a thicker soup.

When done (about an hour) I take a potato masher and mash a few to thicken mine. I add lots of fresh ground black pepper and sprinkle chopped parsley on top to serve.

My wife is originally from upstate NY - she's ruined a lot of us Southerners with her cooking! You decide how much of what you want - this is just her list of ingredients - as close to a recipe as she has for the soup -

Potatoes sliced thin
Broth from ham or polish sausage enough to cover potatoes

Cook until tender

Add sour cream, vinegar, salt,pepper and dill to taste

If Dan Quayle, Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton were all in a spelling bee, do you know which one would win?
Well, Dan would, of course. Because he's the only one of the three of them that would know that harrass was only one word.

The title is mine...She swears this is a 'hard one' to put into words...

From the Quotes below, this is Ms, Salmoneye:

"Potato Soup;

6-8 Medium potatoes, peeled, and cut into small pieces,
approx 1/2 inch, 1 small onion diced, combine and boil
until cooked, drain. Make a white sauce, 2 tablespoons
flour and 2 tablespoons butter, and enough milk to make
it thick, about 2 cups. simmer until thickened. Have
ready about 2 cups diced ham, add to the potatoes, and
mix with the white sauce, then salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy"

Don't blame poor Dan. All he done was read what was on the card.

I don't know if there really is a recipe, you just either slice the potatoes, or dice them, whichever you prefer. You do want to peel the spuds first. Chop up some onion and add to the spuds. boil until done, drain off the water, add enough milk to cover the spuds, and heat. you can add a little butter, or some cheese. I like both. you can also add some diced ham, chopped bell peppers, carrots, and if you want to kick it up a notch, add a little diced japaleno pepper. Then salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy.
