Potato Soup

Part of the reason that I am blogging many of the things I make in the kitchen is so that when I get in a rut and can't think of things to cook, I can go back and look at things that I have made (and loved) in the past.

Yesterday for lunch I peeled a bag of potatoes and boiled them in salted water. I brought a couple of cups of chicken stock to boil in a seperate pan. In a skillet I sauteed a bunch of onions and garlic. I drained the potatoes (reserving the potato water for bread making) leaving about 1 cup of water behind, added the onion mixture and the chicken stock. I used my stick blender to blend until all smooth. I added salt and pepper and then a dash of heavy cream at the end. I served it up with shredded cheddar cheese and left over crumbled bacon. A salad on the side and lunch was done.

For some reason, potato soup is something that I never think to make. I don't know why, because it is so tasty and easy to make. This is on eof those things I need to think about when I can't think of what I should make...
