potato soup

Sandy Mika


this soup is one of my family and friends favorites,. I usually serve it with some home made rolls on the side. You can chop some ham also to garnish with, I usually set the toppings on the side and let everyone top their own bowl, even without the toppings this is a delicious bowl of soup.
