Those were the words that slipped from my teens mouth when he opened the lid on the crockpot and saw we were having potato soup for dinner the other night!! That always makes a mom feel good when anyone, especially a teen has such words about her meals!

Even better is how easy(and cheap!) this one is to make

Potato Soup
6 cups diced, peeled taters
5 cups water
2 cups diced onions
1 cup carrots, diced
1/4 cup butter
4 tsp. chicken bouillon granules OR vegetable granules
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
12 oz can evaporated milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Mix all ingredients in crock pot except cheese and milk. Cook on low 8 hours(may need to cook on high if using a newer crock pot) just before serving add cheese and milk and mix well.
This one gets rave reviews from all! Everyone from the baby to the teen and visiting grandparents love! So easy to make!
I usually round it out with homemade whole wheat rolls. I really like the recipe I got from HERE
Download the free booklet as it is full of good and healthy recipes! I use the bread machine for the dough then shape it by hand!
I have a split pea soup recipe that gets similar reviews, I will post it next time!
