Today It's Going To Be 80 Degrees Here ... And I Just Made Potato Soup

The Vinyl Villager has his Interview with me up today and it's a hoot, as always. Manic Mariah has her interview up as well... and she's always funny too. Check them out!

Yes, it's going to be up around 80 degrees here today. Please don't hate me. You could live here too! So, I'm going to be headed to the golf course here in about an hour, to play a round of 18 with the girls. I'm even going to wear a pair of capris, if I can find them. (Hey, it's been a while since it's been this warm.) I mean, yesterday the high was in the 50's and I made Potato Soup.

So, I shall leave you with this recipe for Potato Soup:


3 cups diced potatoes
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped carrots (optional)
1 cup diced celery
5 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 cups milk
3 cups organic chicken broth
3 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. fresh parsley
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper


1. In a large pan, melt the butter and add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté them for a couple of minutes. Add garlic and cook a moment longer.

2. Add the chicken broth (adjusting amount as you need it) and simmer over medium low fire until vegetables are tender.

3. Once potatoes are cooked, I mash the potatoes rather coarsely so there are still some chunks.

4. Last of all, add the parsley and the milk, then salt and pepper to taste.

80!!! You've seen the pics on my blog. Go ahead, rub it in. My friends in Dallas do! Actually, this soup looks yummy. It's a balmy 29 degrees, and the ground is still covered with our last snow. I may give this a try tonight. Thanks for sharing.

And 'YES' I wish I lived in a Sunny, WARM State! Working on that!

TSannie said...

Yep, I'm jealous. And that soup looks delicious, but not so much on an 80 degree day! Enjoy your round.

It should be 80 here but I think that cold air followed me back from Indy

Mental P Mama said...

Well, it was a balmy 21 here today. And I am going out for some fish!

Okay...first, did you send you Potato Ho Down to Christie at Fig & Cherry? The Ho Down's up and I don't see your entry? Let me know...also you should really send me this one for Feb's Ho Down since I'm really should...really. I think it will make you famous.

Cathy: I couldn't get Fig & Cherry's email thingy (technical term) to work. By then it was too late to send in. I thought. But, I am such a major Potato-Ho. I have many more recipes up my sleeve, lol. Potato-Ho's Unite! I should, by all rights, weigh 250 pounds the way I eat potatoes like there's no tomorrow...

Mmmmm... I love me some tater soup. Anytime. Just got done eating homemade chicken and noodle soup and yeah, it was warm here too, but we were in a soup kinda mood.

It is supposed to be close to 80 tomorrow here in the Dallas area. I wish we could just pick a temp and have it stay there for a week or so. This up and down daily change is killing me!

Heather said...

The only reason I will forgive you for playing golf in 80* weather is that I need a good potato soup recipe.

Would love to see photo of golf fun! Still six inches of snow here--this is the worst it's been since we moved here.
