Mom's Potato Soup-My Way!

I awoke to that blustery weather Saturday morning, and it put me in the mood for my Mom's Potato Soup!

My Mom made delicious potato soup! I like to make it too! However, I've made a few changes because of my cooking habits! I don't cook as freguently, so items like half and half go out of date. Consequently, I don't keep them on hand. I do keep canned condensed soups in the pantry, so I've made some substitutions! Besides, I'd like to keep the fat and calories of half and half for desserts!

Mom's Potato Soup (with my substitutions)

1 large onion
3 Tablespoons of butter (this time I fried 3 slices of bacon and used the fat-not healthy, but tasty!)
5 medium to large potatoes
4-5 cups chicken stock (I use water and bouillon granules)
1 or 2 cups half and half or canned milk ( I used a can of cream of chicken soup, a small can of evaporated milk with a little extra regular milk since it was a small can)
1/2 cup parsley ( I used a sprinkle of parsley flakes and a dash of chives)

Saute onion in butter (I used the bacon fat), add stock and cubed potatoes. Cook until done. Stir in half and half and/or milk/soup. Add seasonings and simmer until heated through.

I didn't get any pretty photos of it in a bowl because we were all hungry and wanting to EAT!
Ya'll Come Back!
