My mom used to make this soup for me. I try to make it once a year or so.

Not a thick creamy soup but good nonetheless but I'll definitely cut back on the butter next time. I used my immersion blender on the leftovers the following day which gave me the creaminess I always associate with potato soups. Made for PAC, Fall '09.
