Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. This recipe is something I threw together with just a few basic simple ingredients. Very tasty and sure to be a keeper for your recipe collection. It is perfect for cold rainy days, main course or perfect for lunch. You can serve it over rice but I like my rice on the side because the rice will absorb the soup. You may add more ingredients or spices to your liking but I like to keep it simple for the picky eaters in the house. I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as my family did.
