Feeling Good Potato Soup

Perfect for a cold day, but even better when you are sick. My family swears it is the cure for the common cold.

I probably did a major change in this recipe but I could only bring myself to use half of the indicated bacon! Other than that, it went pretty much as written, & the resulting soup was A REALLY GREAT TASTE TREAT, & a very satisfying meal for lunch! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
