creamy potato soup

So, as I try to make this more of a reader friendly post, I’m realizing that simplifying my post is much more effective than writing some long drawn out one. To be honest, when I’m looking for a recipe on the internet which takes me to somebody’s blog, I’m the one who clicks on the “Jump to Recipe” button. To save you the trouble, all you have to do is finish reading this paragraph and you’re there. The overall family consensus was that they loved my take on the creamy potato soup and were sad when there wasn’t enough to go around the next day. Take heed and make more.
