Some of you have kindly how our family was affected by the hurricane that hit the northeast this week. We were very blessed to have been mostly untouched. The winds were strong and we had four inches of rain but we never even lost our current. Many in our area had trees down and lost power for over 24 hours. But even that wasn't near as bad as areas closer to the coast. We had much to be grateful for
All this dreary, cold, rainy weather has me in the mood for soup.
But then, it doesn't take much to put me in the mood for soup - I LOVE soup! Here is one of our favorites.
3 potatoes, diced
1 stem celery, chopped (optional)
1 large onion, diced
2 cups corn
1 cup milk
2 T flour
2 T butter
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 strips of bacon, fried and crumbled (optional)
Place potatoes, celery, and onion in pan. Add water until almost covered. Cook until tender. Add corn, butter, salt, and pepper. Mix flour with milk and add to vegetables. Heat to almost boiling. Sprinkle bacon over top if desired.
