I made this yummalicious soup on Friday! I got the recipe from Frugalmom who got it, and modified it, from kerflop. I modified it slightly as well and it was divine! I had some for lunch on saturday and plan on finishing the rest off today for lunch.

Tangy Potato Soup
6 medium to large russet potatoes. Peel 4, leave the skin on 2, and dice into 3/4 inch pieces
2 cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 8 oz package cream cheese
2 tbsp dried minced onion
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tbsp flour
1 cup cooked, crumbled bacon (I used the precooked kind I buy in a big bag at Costco, about 12 oz bacon cooked would yield a cup of bacon)

Put potatoes, chicken broth, cream cheese and onion in a big soup pot. Bring to a boil. Add milk which has been mixed with flour to dissolve lumps. Simmer until potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes). Season with salt and pepper. Add bacon and serve.

*my changes, I had no dried minced onion so I used onion salt (out of onion powder too, oops) about 1 tablespoon. I also added about 2 teaspoons of course ground pepper. And I used 8 smallish potatoes because thats all I had. Then garnished with graded medium sharp cheese, delish!

I know I am way behind on this, but I think you should buy this for your new laptop. I'll sell you one for pretty cheap. You can go to school with only one bag, instead of your backpack, and then your computer case!!!

BTW, I got a real yummy recipe for you. If I can find it, I'll email it to you!!!
