When we got married, my husband lost many nights of sleep worrying that I would try to poison him with brown sugar or ketchup. Little did he know that my theory is:
If you can't beat 'em, join em.
Some of my favorite recipes are recipes from my mother in law! Here is her delicious recipe for potato soup:
Chunky Potato Soup
4-5 potatoes, peeled and cubed small
2 stalks celery, diced small
2 carrots, diced small
3 onions- 1 diced, 2 whole
3-4 tablespoons flour
salt and pepper to taste
Heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil in a 6 quart pot. Add the diced onion, and saute until clear. Stir in flour, and mix well. Add in potatoes, celery, carrots and spices. Fill to the top with water. Bring everything to a boil. Add the remaining 2 onions, lower the pot to a simmer, and let cook for 3-4 hours.
