Better than Vegetable…Vegetable soup!

IMG_9796IMG_9797

so I have never been a fan of vegetable soup and when I say a fan of I mean I could not stand it, and beefy vegetable was worse… I always felt bad because it is probably my moms most favorite soup and since I did not like it she never fixes it(even though I tell her too almost begging her to I can always find something else to eat. She says it makes too much for just her so we just skip it every time.

Until the other night when I was helping mom put back her cookbooks(she is doing a bit of remodeling and so anyway I found a neat cookbook from the Amish country (one of our favorite places to go for day trips)

So inside the first page I looked at had this recipe that intrigued me “cheesy vegetable soup” and thus began our conversation about making it.

Yes we found the recipe in the Amish cookbook but we made it our own so we call ours “Better than Vegetable…Vegetable soup”

Here is what you need

  1. 3 medium potatoes(cubed)
  2. 1 medium onion diced

  8. 2 cans of cream of chicken soup

  10. green onions and shredded cheddar for garnish
