Once upon a time, Season to Taste shared one of my dear friend’s recipes for her potato soup. I say it is time for a return engagement.
When the weather turns crisp, all great minds join together in one accord and we start thinking, “stew and hot soup!” You can always get potatoes at the grocery store and they’re inexpensive enough to allow them to be served to several. Today, why not cheerfully turn them into a pot of perfection and offer this not so humble bowl of goodness to your family?
