Soup Weather

Well, with the return of cool weather, I thought I would post my 2 favorite soup recipes...

Potato Cheese Soup

5 c. potatoes (cubed)
3 t. salt
1/4 c. chopped onion

Cover in water (not too much water) and boil.
In another pan:
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. pepper
1 t. powder mustard
1 t. Worcestershire sauce
4 c. milk
Stir till thickens...
add 2 c. cheese (we like sharp OR mozzarella)
Stir until cheese melts then add to potatoes (with water), stir and mash with a potato masher to desired consistency.

Easy Yummy Taco Soup

1 med onion chopped
14.5 oz can stewed or diced tomatoes

First, you have a lovely blog. Second I love these recipes...or how they look and will have to try them out. I love soup, but I live in the South so we won't be having soup weather for a long time.
