I'm pretty sure that I just made the best Potato Soup I've ever made. Have I told ya'll lately that I'm a terrible cook? Truth. But this stuff is good. Really.
First I put some butter (the real stuff) and some bacon grease in a pot. No bacon - I don't like bacon in my potato soup. I just like grease. I can't believe I said that - don't anybody e-mail about that because I know those two things are terrible and awful and probably were the true cause of WW II or will lead to an invasion of aliens or something. I don't care. Well, maybe I care because I don't want to be eaten by an alien but I'm still gonna' use butter and bacon grease because I'm from the south and it's genetic. Then I sauteed some onions and celery and carrots for a few minutes in that brease. That's my new word for butter and grease.
I added some potatoes that were beginning to get crinkled I'd had them so long and two cans of chicken broth. One of them was fat free if that makes you feel any better. I have no idea how that got in my pantry. Then I added a little leftover Almond Milk that I had. A friend told me it was good to drink and good for you but I bought the wrong brand I guess because it wasn't. I've been sneaking it in things I cook so my husband won't know it. And I mixed up some dry milk because I'm trying to save a little money and added some of that. When the vegetables were done I added about 4 oz of cream cheese because I had it leftover and it needed to be used and about 8 oz of Velveeta.
Potato soup is comfort food. Potato soup is good. My potato soup today is the best ever. I win. :)
Edit: Oops. Forgot to tell you I added some potato flakes to thicken it before I put in the cheeses. That's all. Unless I forgot something else.
