Tasty Thursday

It actually rained here in SW Ohio last evening.  There was even thunder and lightning.  The wind blew the rain all around, the trees are probably less some dry, brittle leaves.  We haven't had a thunder storm in months.  We haven't had rain in months.  The last I heard is that we are down seven or eight inches in the water table.  Now the weather is total fall; cool, breezy and in the 60's as a high.

So cooler weather makes me think of soups and chowders.  I found this recipe and made it (with modifications) and everyone in my family loved it!  Thanks to for this.


8 Potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
8 cupsMmilk
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1 (8 oz.) container of Sour Cream
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes and onion, in just enough water to cover until soft.

While potatoes are cooking melt butter in a sauce pan over med.-high heat. Whisk in flour until smooth, then gradually stir in the milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 10 more minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Stir flour mixture into the potatoes (most of the water will have evaporated or cooked out). Cook 5 more minutes. Stir in sour cream and cheese until melted and blended. Season to your liking.
*I used mozzarella cheese and I used more of it (like another cup). I also added dill and I added cubed ham to it.

It was so good that it is going in my green recipe notebook.  It was simple to make and a big family pleaser for all of us.
It was yummy!


  1. This sounds wonderful! I'm not big on soup normally but this one sounds like something even I would enjoy! It rained in South Alabama yesterday too and we were soooo thankful!

  2. I need to make potato soup! It has been forever.

  3. mmmm, sounds DELICIOUS! I love that "soup season" is upon us. Definitely going to be trying this one out - thanks!
