Potato Soup

A cold rainy day here for me, and that means potato soup. Have you ever made it ? My Uncle made it this way when I was a kid, and I have done it like this ever since

Wash and cut into big chunks a 5lbs bag of potatoes. Put into your pot and boil for about 20 mins.

cut the heat down to a simmer, and crumble in 2 cans of corned beef. Trust me

Chop a small onion and add to the soup

Add some cut celery

Take your peeler and and add some carrot slivers into also. Add salt and pepper to taste

Let it simmer for about 30mins, and then add 2 cans evaporated milk. Regular milk will work OK if you do not have any

Depending on your taste, you can leave it a little thin, or I use instant potatoes to thicken it up some

Fry some grilled cheese sandwiches up and you have a great dinner. Also, do not worry about the remaining soup, It gets better as it gets older so the leftovers always get eaten
