The reason I came up with this recipe is because I was going through some childhood memories in my brain’s file cabinet. When I came across a food memory, go figure it’s almost as if all I think about is food. Oh well, that’s just how my brain works. Anyway, I remember being in the hospital, As I was a lot as a child due to asthma and other asthma related issues. I loved hospital food, believe it or not. 

 

Easy Potato Soup

 

I’m not sure if I had just gotten used to hospital food, but all the food was fantastic to me. One dish in particular that I would always get whenever I would see on the menu was the creamy potato soup. It was so delicious, I just couldn’t understand how they made a soup with just potato so delicious and so creamy. After coming across this recipe in my brains file cabinet, I decided to make something similar. I wasn’t going for the exact soup I had in the hospital, because I was also inspired by a couple other soups that I had seen around.

Anyway, I got into the kitchen as I usually do. Grabbed a pot, threw in a bunch of things and out came this delicious potato soup is what came that. I love creamy soups, another favorite of mine is a nice creamy broccoli soup. You can eat this with crackers served over rice, or eat it with some bread. however you choose to eat this soup, it will be delicious. So have fun make it your own and enjoy!
