Golden Cream Soup (Potato Soup)


Golden Cream Soup (Potato Soup)
 
Potato Soup is a comfort food.  We seem to have a lot of comfort foods in the South!  It's easy, quick, and delicious.  There are just times when a bowl of Potato Soup hits the spot.  I know if I go to lunch at O'Charley's and don't want any particular item on the menu, I always opt for a bowl of Potato Soup and it always satisfies me.  It had been sometime since I had made a pot of Potato Soup and I decided it would be a good choice for a side dish to go with our grilled burgers that we had for Sunday lunch.  My daughter-in-law, Joy, had never had a taste of my Potato Soup and loved it!  Brent decided that it would take two bowls of Potato Soup with crumbled bacon on top to satisfy his taste buds.  Glad my family enjoyed it so much.  I know your family will love it, too!
 
The wild baby kitten still lives in the burn pile and we cannot burn the pile of pecan limbs until we have tamed the kitten.  I made some progress yesterday afternoon.  The kitten was hungry and had ventured out of the pile to the area where we had been feeding it.  I sat down on the ground and placed the plate of food on the ground in front of me.  The kitten came to eat with me sitting there but if I tried to pet the kitten, it would run back to the burn pile.  It came back to eat several times, so at least I got a close-up view of the kitten.  I'll keep you posted on the taming of the wild baby kitten!
