Cream of Potato Soup
6 cups chicken broth (I have used OXO to make my broth - shortcuts are good!)
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
3 cups chopped potatoes
3 cups chopped carrots
1/4 cup parsley
1-2 tsp dill weed
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste
4 cups milk
6 tbsp cheez whiz or 6 slices cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped ham or sausage
Combine broth, onions, potatoes, carrots, parsley and dill weed in a large pot. Bring to a boil and simmer until veggies are tender.
In a sauce pan, melt butter, blend in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk all at once, cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in cheese until melted. Add to broth and vegetables; mix well. Add meat. Cook until heated through.
This will be supper for us today. Along with some biscuits straight out of the oven....mmmm!
As good as this might sound, I'm afraid it may be seen as a bit cruel by Don. Yesterday I took some steaks out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge. He's expecting a "man's steak" for supper .....not "girly soup and biscuits!"
