Feels Like Fall

For the past week, I have felt the comfort of FALL attempting to push Summer into a memory. Although I cringe at the thought of allowing Summer to pass through my grasp, I do love Fall in Kentucky. It is, perhaps, the most beautiful season and brings forth SEC football, Halloween, and southern comfort food. One of my husband's favorite fall recipes is Potato Soup. I have tried many different recipes and have finally combined several of my favorites into one perfect recipe.


6-8 bacon strips
6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 (14 oz) can chicken broth
1 small carrot, grated
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 TBSP parsley flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 TBSP flour
3 cups milk
16 oz velveeta cheese, cubed
2 green onions, optional for garnish

Cook bacon until crisp, then drain and crumble. In a large cooker, mix chicken broth, potatoes, carrot, onion, parsley, salt, and pepper. Add bacon and stir. Heat to a boil, then decrease heat to simmer. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. In a bowl, combine flour and milk until smooth. Add to soup. Bring soup to boil. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and soup is heated through. Garnish with green onions.
