For Linda

I have to tell you that I am sorely tempted to delete my last post--you know, the one about nothing? I always feel so foolish after posting on nothing, as the nothing I write always tends to read exactly like nothing, if you know what I mean. There are many bloggers out there who can write of nothing with such charm and wit that nothing in their skillful hands reads like something. Sadly, I am not among them and it's time I own it and quit trying (this post notwithstanding, of course).

So, Mocha with Linda in her comment on the aforementioned nothing post asked for a potato recipe--you know, in keeping with the whole mish/mash theme I've got going on. So, here is a recipe for potato soup, though no mashing required...

WAYNE'S POTATO SOUP

4 cups cubed potatoes (about 6 medium)
1 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2 stick butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 lb Velveeta (or 1 1/2 packs of the shredded)
2 cups milk

Saute onion in butter until tender. Add potatoes. Barely cover with water; add salt and pepper and cook approximately 20 minutes. Stir in chicken soup. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add milk and heat thoroughly.

Enjoy!
