A MILK & VEGETABLE SOUP an OLD FARM RECIPE

This soup is in honor of my Grandma. This would have been her birthday month.
Milk vegetable soups are made from cooked vegetables (chopped or sliced) and with milk slightly thickened.
The vegetables could be peas beans, carrots, potatoes, onions and spinach or a diced tomato,if you have it.
If the vegetables are starchy, use less flour or thin soup with milk. I hope you enjoy Grandma's simple soup as much as I do.
Seems like she always had a pot of soup,keeping warm in the oven. In case a neighbor stopped by.
Some day I plan to do a cookbook of her recipes.

Grandma got hers from her garden,
in the summer time.
Come winter she would go down into her cellar
bring up the jars of the vegetables
that she wanted to use.
Also the winter vegetable bin,
for potatoes, and a few root veggies.
In the fall she was like squirrel,
putting away food for the winter months.

Or if there is a farmers market close to you.
I urge you to buy fresh.
Your soup will taste so much better.
Plus you're taste buds will jump with joy!
5
Of course you could always use canned,
from the stores.
SHHhh@..Grandma would not like that,
but she would, pray for you.
Picture is of my grandma,
JOANN WALKER a great but simple cook!
I know she is in heaven
teaching the angels how to cook!
That's MY GRANDMA!
She taught WW2 wives how to cook
and can produce at a school!
That was the days of victory gardens.
I swear she could make a meal out of a sows ear!
This wonderful soup is her recipe.
