Soup's On

It's chilly and's the perfect weather for soup. Oh heck, any weather is perfect for soup but I digress....
It's fast, it's easy and it looks pretty. Kinda describes me too huh? Aw....just kidding. But I made you smile huh? No? Aw....okay. Back to the soup. Here's the recipe, straight from Robin Miller's kitchen on the Food Network.
Cheddar Potato Soup
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced celery
6 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups mashed potatoes
8 ounces shredded Cheddar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Hot sauce, optional
Add oil to a large pot set over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery and saute for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add stock and mashed potatoes and bring to a simmer. Using a hand blender or regular blender, puree soup until smooth (when using a regular blender, work in batches to prevent messy cleanups!). Add Cheddar, salt, white pepper, dry mustard and hot sauce. Stir to combine and allow the cheese to melt.

Nothing like that here in Panama that I could see...I did, however, meet my goal....leaving here with no intestinal parasites....sadly, not all of my fellow conference can say the same thing ("Gee, this looks like a "quaint" authentic Panamanian restaurant...")

Love you bunches!

My mouth is watering so bad. I would love to have that soup! But I fear it would not agree with my scale. I will have to write down the recipe though I have a feeling it could be my new favorite comfort food!
