Creamy Ham And Potato Soup

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Even with the warm weather still here, I have had a hankering for soup, what’s wrong with this picture? I guess I’m just trying to force Mother Nature into cooling us off a little! With October only two days away and the weatherman predicting a little cool down for this weekend, I am a happy camper. Maybe we’ll even get out of Dodge this Saturday and do a little flea marketing although I don’t know why, I sure as hell don’t need any more junk or Christmas decor!

Creamy and Tasty!

Creamy and Tasty!

On with this recipe…. This really hit the spot yesterday along with watching some football on the tube. I had never really thought about adding sour cream to my soup which made it so so tasty and creamy. I basically just used flour for my potato soups but I think those days are gone. I got the idea from an older Better Homes and Garden soup and stew cookbook that graces my vast collection of books (another thing I don’t need any of!).

Pass the crackers it's soup time!!!
