One thing nice about this soup is that you can make as much or as little as you want.

Peal your potatoes and cut into cubes. Peal and chop your carrots and then chop your onion. Put your potatoes, carrots and onion in a pot and add your salt. Mom always used water in her soup but I like to use chicken broth, because I like the added flavor you get from the broth. Put in enough liquid to just barely cover your vegetables.

Cook until potatoes and vegetables are tender. Add the half and half. Mom always used milk for this recipe but I like the creaminess from the half and half. Add your pepper and a couple of tablespoons of butter and some chopped parsley. Since your vegetables are already cooked all you do is stir and serve.

*If you like your potato soup a little thicker you can take a fork and mash a couple of potatoes and this will give the soup a thicker texture.

*it is so important to add salt in the water when cooking the potatoes, although if you use chicken broth instead of water add lightly and then when the soup is finished cooking you can add more at the end.

Personal Notes:
It seemed that while growing up we always had potatoes, carrots, onions and milk so this recipe was a go to recipe that mom, Virginia, would make for us. Over the years all my children, Tracy, Carrie and Chris have enjoyed this soup. To this day it is still one of my favorites.
