potato soup… that’s not how the popular holiday song goes but it was sure what I was dreaming about last night. My dad made one of the best soups that has touched my young adult taste buds. After I licked my bowl clean, I immediately called to ask him how he created heaven in a bowl.
It was savory and creamy but it was not heavy at all. My dad told me that he sauteed a chopped onion and some garlic. Boiled some potatoes and drained them of water. Then added the onion, potato and garlic with some milk and half & half with salt and pepper to taste. Now, surely it could not be this easy and taste so good. But it was, in fact, this easy and this good. On the side, I had half of a cornbread muffin.
It got me to thinking. If this soup recipe was so easy and delicious, then there must be more out there with the same concept. Genius thinking, I know. Sometimes I just get caught up in cooking “gourmet” that I forget about the simplicity of a tried and true good recipe.
Take a look at my oatmeal mug from this morning. I received it as a Christmas gift from my hairdresser. It’s a funny little quote that is 100% true when it comes to any hair salon that I have ever been to. 😉
