Grandma Marty's Chunky Potato Soup

To make this a filling meal,I usually serve this soup with fresh bread.For a slightly different twist,serve it in individual bread bowls. To make them,buy small round loaves of a hearty bread,such as Italian,and slice off a small piece from the top.Then remove the insides of the loaf,leaving a 1 1/2-inch shell;fill with hot soup...
Enjoy : )
