Here is my cast iron Dutch oven, full of potato soup. You may remember I bought two bags of potatoes and said I would need to eat them a lot for a while. That is what I am doing. The soup has nice chunks of ham, as well. We cooked a ham just before Christmas. You possibly see the parsley floating on top. I am going to serve some to hubby and I, and let the rest cool to have on another day. This is perfect for the cold weather.

@BarBaraPrz I like it with basil on top, or I like to stir in a little salsa for a zing.

Soup comes in so many varieties. I like chicken tortilla soup. It seems we shall be eating soup of one kind or another for several days.

I should also make some potato salad. A roast would be good with potatoes, too.

It is one that stays well with you. Not sure you would want hot soup in your hot weather, though.

@GardenGerty No, that's true although I do like soup. Very occasionally I make cold soup in summer - perhaps cucumber or tomato soup.

@JudyEv I have not ever made cold soup. I should in the summer though as that is when we have so much fresh produce.

Yummy! I would love to try it! I never made soup homemade before but would love to try! i have a Dutch oven, but it is too heavy even to lift, so i never used it. I usually buy soup in a can. I did buy tomato soup last Saturday and some creak of chicken soups for casseroles.

It is a challenge to cook for only one person. You could use a saucepan and just cook a small amount.

@GardenGerty For how many do you cook?From what I read of your posts I think you just cook for your husband and you. Do you scale down recipes so that you cook only for two? Do you ever have a lot of leftovers? Have you ever spent a week eating all the food a recipe made?

Do you find it freezes well. I always heard potatoes get yucky when frozen. Of course that does not make sense cause french fries and hash browns come frozen.
