More Like Potato Soup
You made it
I enjoyed the soup
It was your first time making it
The taste is there
Maybe, too many potatoes
It might get thicker if it rests for awhile
There is a big pot of it
All I know I am going in for seconds
Anyone else ever have this problem?
Even if it doesn't come out like she expected
I love my wife's cooking
One more meal
One more belly full

Ann Carr My wife loves watching the cooks on t.v. So I never know what she will try. I love to eat. My wife is on Weight Watchers and I tell her if we just have a taste. We end up sharing the rest with neighbors. A win/win. Thank you for reading and I love the personal stories. They touch me deeply every time. Have a sweet afternoon.

My problem is that I like potatoes in the soup but usually put too many in and the soups all wind up like potato soups. Just not a good soup maker so I stick to stews,

Sounds like our house! We have soup a lot in the winter and we never tire of it. My partner is a much better cook than I am, so it's usually his concoction, never the same recipe twice! Always yummy! And yes, ours last for a few days too, usually improving with age (just like us)!

BRENDA ARLEDGE We both do our best to make each other happy. In the process, we become the happiest person we have ever been. We both have always been givers and surprising enough even when you feel there is nothing left to give there is still more. To come home to a happy home life makes any problems we encounter small. We have our uphill battles but we fight them together instead of one against the other. it is funny I cook for a living but desire to write and help people through my poems. If they can learn from me then they can laugh their way to a better day. My wife helps people with problems with their cable and internet service but her desire is to cook. Thank you for all your tips and suggestions. I always get a smile out of your answers. Another day another adventure. Have a lovely afternoon.

Sounds like potato soup.
Believe me...he has eaten a few meals that don't turn out too great.
But as for potato soup, that is His specialty.
Me...I just can't seem to do it.
I think his trick is to let a few of the tiniest bits of potatoe cook up...that makes it a bit thicker.
So glad you treat your wife so well.
Have a great day.

DW Davis I love potatoes but they overpowered the corn chowder. So it tasted more like a potato chowder. My wife followed the recipe. Does your wife make corn chowder? There are so many different recipes that are all a little bit different. There is no one right way. Some recipes are better than others. I love a nice home-cooked meal. It is easy to get spoiled by all the good cooking. We are both very blessed. Thank you for reading and sharing. Here is to our wonderful wife and all their delicious food. Have a great night.

I didn't understand the line about "too many potatoes." Can a soup have too many potatoes?
My wife is also a great cook, and she makes wonderful soups.
