Simple Soup for One





Last week when I was sick,
I was hungry for something
"comforting to my tummy."
This came to mind, now I
know that most everyone
knows how to make potato
soup BUT on the off chance
that someone doesn't
here is my version.


Potato Soup (for 1)

Five small potatoes,
peeled and cubed
3/4 C milk
1 T butter
2 slices of cheese-torn
in pieces (mine was
American)
Parsley (optional)

In a small saucepan cook
potatoes until almost tender,
drain and place back in pan.
Add the milk, butter and
cheese to the potatoes. Stir
together and let simmer until
all is blended. Before serving,
add parsley if desired.

Enjoy!


~Keep on Dreaming~


PS: I wanted to THANK
everyone for the well wishes,
hugs, prayers and comfort I
received while I was sick. I
am almost 100 % and on the
road back!

  3. Potato cheese soup is one of my favorites, but something I can't eat anymore. It sends my blood sugars too high.

    1. Oh Cathy! I can totally relate. And when I was gestational diabetic...I could eat ice cream and have lower blood sugar readings than if I ate mac and cheese or mashed potatoes, etc. Those starchy carbs take so long to process its just torture on our blood sugar levels! HUGS!

    2. That is a tough one. It is getting to
      the point where nothing is good for us.

  5. I'm looking forward to making this one the next time the daddy is on-duty!!! My kiddos don't like potato soup and so I'm always stuck with a stockpot full (not that that's a bad thing! LOL). So glad to see you're feeling better. Hugs.

    1. Thanks, enjoy it when you make it.
      I wasn't a big fan of most soup when I
      was a child. Sure do like it now!

  6. So glad you're feeling better. The soup looks delicious. I'm a fan of both potato and corn chowder.
