Potato Soup

It is that time of year! It's cold outside and it's time for soup! So here is a recipe that I came up with based on several recipes that I tried and modified. My favorite part is that it is easy to prepare and it is ready for you at dinner time. This is one of our favorite things to eat at our house in the fall and winter.

1 big container of chicken broth
1 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
2 cups of milk
a bunch of peeled and chopped up potatoes
several slices of bacon cooked and broken up
Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine this in a crockpot and cook for at least 8 hours on high so potatoes are nice and soft.

Just before you serve, put a little bit of flour in the soup to thicken it and stir it up well- remember to only add a little at a time- you can always add more but you can't take it out once it is there!

Garnish with cheese, sour cream, anything else your heart desires!

Serve in bread bowls! Yummy!
