Potato Soup

It’s fall, y’all! I woke up this week and it was 58 degrees outside. Yessssss. Fall delivered right on time. And yes, there may or may not be a cold front that’s moving through, but still. It is officially Fall, and I decided to celebrate by making one of my favorites, potato soup. It is wonderfully delicious, and you will find yourself going back for a second bowl… or three. Until you realize that you overate and your belly hurts. It’s that good. Make it soon!
