Baked Potato Soup
Meal Planning Mommies

3 potatoes
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 cup celery
1/4 cup onion
3 tbs butter
3tbs flour
4 cups of half/half (or milk)
1 cup chicken broth
Bacon (optional)
Corn (optional)
shredded cheese

1. If you are going to make this with bacon, go ahead and cook up some slices and set them aside to cool. 2. Clean your potatoes and throw them into the microwave to cook. Keeping the skin on will make them have extra nutrients. After they are soft, let them cool and then cut them up into bit sized pieces. Set aside. 3. Cut up your onion, celery, and carrots. 4. In a big soup pan put 3 tbs butter, melt. Add in your veggies and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 5. Add in your 3 tbs flour, salt, pepper, thyme. Stir. 6. Add in your 4 cups milk/half and half. Stir and let thicken. It will take about 3-5 minutes. 7. Add in your 1 cup of chicken broth,potatoes, and your cheese. 8. Add in your potatoes and let simmer for a good long while. Perhaps, 30 minutes.
Stir occasionally and let the smell fill the kitchen.
