For Linda

I have to tell you that I am sorely tempted to delete my last post–you know, the one about nothing? I always feel so foolish after posting on nothing, as the nothing I write always tends to read exactly like nothing, if you know what I mean. There are many bloggers out there who can write of nothing with such charm and wit that nothing in their skillful hands reads like something. Sadly, I am not among them and it’s time I own it and quit trying (this post notwithstanding, of course).

So, Mocha with Linda in her comment on the aforementioned nothing post asked for a potato recipe–you know, in keeping with the whole mish/mash theme I’ve got going on. So, here is a recipe for potato soup, though no mashing required…


4 cups cubed potatoes (about 6 medium)
1 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2 stick butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 lb Velveeta (or 1 1/2 packs of the shredded)
2 cups milk

Saute onion in butter until tender. Add potatoes. Barely cover with water; add salt and pepper and cook approximately 20 minutes. Stir in chicken soup. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add milk and heat thoroughly.

  1. You are hilarious! That looks delicious, and I’ve been wanting a good potato soup recipe that didn’t require baking them first!And don’t be so hard on yourself. You are always a pleasure to read!

  2. Heavens to Betsy that sounds great! Especially coming from me who just went out for Friday night dinner and ordered grilled chicken on dry wheat bun. Blegh.

Join the conversation! I may not always reply directly but I do read and appreciate every comment.
