Potato Soup Plus II

Remember this soup? I made this soup this past fall and my husband wanted to learn to start cooking and how to chop things and such so I figured this would be a great recipe to try again. He thought there were too many potatoes in the last one so we used less. Then we adjusted it as we saw fit for the recipe. The second try was a complete success and totally different from the first trial. I think the Potato Soup Plus II is a definite upgrade!!

Look at my awesome husband learning to peel potatoes!

Then I showed him an easy chopping method .. while I taste-tested a few slices. =)

This version of the soup takes less time than the first and uses less dishes. I followed the original recipe which called to heat the soups and milk on the stove top and then add it to the mixture originally, but this turned out even better. The paprika did come out in small chunks. I didn't realize it was just to taste and for seasoning until it was too late. Oh well. Maybe there will one day be a third trial.

Here is the original photo from the first trial. I think you can tell it's definitely got more potatoes in it.
