What I had for dinner

Potato Soup

Austrian Potato Soup!
I realized that up until now,  all of my recipes have been for sweets.  Probably because that is what I like to cook best.  However, with the weather changing I got in the mood for some warm soup.   Oh, comfort food!  Sooooo good.  This recipe comes from my Mom who made this for me right after I had my baby.  Good memories!

Austrian Potato Soup

¼ c. bacon drippings                                                       4 large potatoes
1 c. chopped onion                                                          1 c. celery chopped
1/3 c. flour                                                                       1 can mushrooms
3 c. hot water + 3 chicken bouillon cubes                         2 c. grated Monterey Jack Cheese
3 c. milk                                                                          Salt and Pepper

In a large pan, sauté onion in bacon drippings.  Stir in flour until it is golden.  Stir in liquids.  Add potatoes, celery, and mushrooms.  Simmer until tender.  Stir in cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper.
