Post Homemade Potato Soup


8 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 medium onion, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
chicken stock or water
1 can evaporated skim milk
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
instant potato flakes


Put potatoes, onion and celery into large dutch oven (big pot), cover with chicken stock, simmer until potatoes are soft but not falling apart. Add milk, then parsley. Continue to simmer until parsley is done (about 10 minutes), now stirring constantly (but gently as not to break up potatoes) add potato flakes until soup is desired thickness. Add a dollup of butter, serve hot.

NOTE: I serve warm crusty sourdough bread and a nice green salad. I sincerely hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does!
