It's a good hearty soup, that can be changed a bit to suit your own tastes. This is my husbands grand mothers recipe. Doesn't freeze well but microwaves just fine

This was sooo good. JUST what I was looking for -- a hearty, chunky potato soup. Even DH, who isn't a soup man (and not even a boiled-potato man) gave it 5 stars! YEA!! But he was concerned: "It's got a LOT of cream in it, doesn't it." :-) It has a lovely creamy taste to it. I substituted cabbage for the celery and used Italian Seasoning instead of parsley. Delicious! Thank you!
