For the Festival

A crockpot recipe and a long time favorite from my childhood to help celebrate the Crock Pot Festival at Bless Us O Lord, hosted by Barbara! This makes a good Friday meatless meal, too. It’s very simple to put together, and like all good crockpot recipes, ready to eat when you are!

Potato Soup
about 6 potatoes, peeled and chopped up
2-3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
½ stick of butter
4 bullion cubes (chicken or vegetable)
1 can evaporated milk

Place the potatoes, celery, and carrot in the crockpot. Just cover them with water. Then add the bullion cubes and place the butter on top. Cover and cook on low all day, until potatoes are tender. Add the evaporated milk, mix together. Puree in a food processor and garnish with shredded cheese of your choice.
Optional: add ½ a sweet onion with the other veggies
