Take four good-sized potatoes, cut into dice; also two small onions finely chopped; add salt, pepper, celery salt, and a small piece of bacon or a little butter. Cover with a quart of water.Cook slowly for one hour. Blend two tablespoons flour with one cup of milk. Add to hot soup, stir until it comes to a boil. Cook for a few minutes. This is very good.

Hi Zelda, you have had some wonderful recipes posted but just to let you know if there isn't a picture of the recipe and yourself(which you have that) you won't be considered for a blue ribbon. Someone put me onto it, so I thought I'd do the same for you. Hugs.
