      this is the absolute best potato soup recipe that I
      have made…it is a recipe from my Aunt who has been
      cooking “Southern” for at least 50 years…

      4 cups water
      2 chicken bouillon cubes
      2 T parsley
      1 tsp basil
      season salt
      1 celery stalk
      1 chopped onion
      the bacon drippings from 4 slices of cooked bacon
      2 T flour
      1 1/2 cups milk (or half and half to make richer)
      6-7 good sized potatoes

      In a pot, I saute the onions in the bacon drippings
      until limp. Next I add the water, seasonings and
      potatoes and boil until the potatoes are tender. Then
      scoop out a bit of the hot water that the potatoes
      have cooked in and dissolve your flour in it. Pour
      flour into the soup along with your milk. Let simmer
      until ready to eat. I also have a broccoli cornbread
      recipe that is WONDERFUL with any soup…

      1 stick margarine
      2 pks of 17 oz Jiffy Cornbread mix
      1 10 oz frozen chopped broccoli (thawed but not
      1 med chopped onion
      1 10 oz cottage cheese
      4 eggs
      1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

      Melt margarine in 9×13 cake pan. Mix other
      ingredients except cheddar cheese. Pour mixture over
      margarine..then sprinkle with cheddar. 375 for 30
      minutes. This is fabulous. Liz K

      My dad used to make a soup called ham chowder where it was basically mashed potatoes and ham mixed together and some other ingredients I don’t remember… I miss it so bad. Thank you so much, I’ve been wanting a soup like his for a long time now.
