Blog Issues and a recipe

Hum Seems that Blogspot has some issues. My last three post seem to have disappeared into thin air!!  Sorry about that!  Here is a favorite Recipe for a cold fall day.


2 Russet potatoes - about the size of  a large baker
1/2 Yellow Onion
1 Clove Garlic
1 rib of celery
1 -2 Tablespoons of chicken base
2 cups of shredded sharp Cheddar Cheese

Peel the potatoes and cut them into fourths and then slice. Dice the onion, celery and garlic.  Put all of the ingredients into a large stock pot and cover with cold water.  Add half of the chicken base. Bring to a boil and the reduce to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are tender.  Taste the broth to see if you need to add more chicken base or salt.  Use an immersion blender and puree the soup in the pot - be careful as the liquid is very hot!   Add the cheese and continue to puree.  Taste the soup and determine if you want more cheese or to adjust seasoning.

Great on cold day!  This will make enough for 2- 3 servings.  Just adjust for a larger amount.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
