Recipe by KerfuffleUponWincle

Began as a simple homemade potato soup, but after opening the cupboard and the fridge, a new heartier soup was born!

This was very very good. I used a 19 oz can of tomatoes because that is what I had on hand and I did not add the fennel. My family really enjoyed this and it was quite easy to make too. Thanks for the recipe.
