Lazy Potato Soup

Mary Ann Hanson


This is another recipe I made often when my kids were growing up. If was one of their favorites and it was quick to make. I always had the ingredients on hand for a go to meal after a busy day. It even went faster if I had remembered to chop extra vegetables while preparing another meal!
