It's Soup Weather!

I love making soup. It's so easy and rewarding and a great way to use up any leftovers you may have laying around. While S was busy organizing his workshop I decided to surprise him with a pot of yummy soup.

I normally don't use a recipe per se but this is more or less the potato soup I usually make. After a quick walk over to my neighbor's huge rosemary bush I was ready to get started! The only thing that would have made it better was some of J's sourdough bread! I think I'll make that very soon!

Potato Soup:
  • 2-4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place potatoes and water in a large saucepan; cook over medium heat until tender. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, saute onion butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt, thyme, rosemary, and pepper. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add potatoes with cooking liquid; heat through.

I don't know how I missed this soup recipe but one of the built in features at Wordpress led me to it this morning...a week later. Strange. Potato soup, made right is one of my favorites. This recipe sounds great!
