Steaming Bowl of Potato Soup

Maddie eating potato soupYou know me. I start with a recipe–usually using it as a reference–because I haven’t done that planning that would ensure I have all the necessary ingredients. Such was the case with today’s dinner, Potato Soup.

I started with this recipe from Allrecipes, Potato Leek Soup.  It had great rating–but even as important–I had enough of the ingredients that I could punt. Of course I didn’t have the leeks (although those would have been GREAT!) so I sauteed some onions and diced up some green onions for color and to finish it. I also added some carrots which I cooked with the onions. At the end, I also squeezed some fresh lemon juice (maybe half a lemon) to give the dish that little sparkle!

Best of all, everyone enjoyed the soup! The picky six year olds ate every last drop and Luke even gave it a thumbs up!
