Potato Soup

This is another favorite for cold/chilly days! My brother loves to call it "Sleepy Time Soup", he believes it makes me sleepy every time he eats it! Never mind that he eats like 3-4 bowls of it! :)

Potato Soup

6 cups cubed peeled potatos
5 cups water
2 cups chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/4 cup butter or margarine
4 tsp. chicken bouillon granules
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
Spicy Italian sausage (really any kind you want; we just like some added protein)
3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley or 2 tbsp. dried parsley

In a large slow cooker or pot, combine the first nine ingredients. Cover and cook until the vegetables are tender. Meanwhile I cook up some sausage and since I like some added flavor or “kick” to it I use some spicy Italian sausage. When it comes time to add the milk and parsley I add the sausage too: Mix well. cover and cook for about 30 minutes longer to heat all the way through.

*If you choose to do in a crock pot it usually takes about 7 hrs. to cook. On the stove top usually takes about 1-2 hrs. depending on how big you cut your potatos.
