One of the bad things with this up and down weather we’ve had is that it’s easy for someone to get sick.  For me, the strong south winds that bring in warmer weather also drive my allergies crazy.  I’m afraid I’m developing a sinus infection.  I stayed home for work today, and I was glad I had leftover creamy potato soup for lunch.

Creamy Potato Soup

In a large stock pot mix:

1/2 cup finely diced onion

3 cups cubed peeled potatoes

2 Tbsp. finely grated carrot

1 tsp. dill (dried)

2 12 oz. cans of vegetable stock

Cook until the potatoes are soft.  Use the potato masher to mash them to the desired consistency.  I like mine to have a bit more texture than a normal cream soup.

In a small sauce pan melt 4 Tbsp. butter.  Add 4 Tbsp. flour, 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper.  Once it is mixed, Add 2 cups of milk.  Use a whisk to stir until all the flour is mixed in.  Then stir until it is very thick and bubbly.

Add this creamy mixture to the pan with the potatoes, mix it up and you are ready to eat!

Hopefully, a good night’s sleep will be just the cure I need.

      I’m sure bacon bits would be a great addition if you aren’t vegetarian. I will be visiting the doctor tomorrow, so hopefully it will get better.

    Awww, I can totally relate. I’ve been taking 2 Alegra’s a day for the past few years since we moved to the farm — lots of allergens here!

      I’m feeling pretty lucky that I haven’t had problems with it sooner. I’m also feeling pretty lucky the animals are handling the drastic changes in weather without getting sick.

      Saw the doctor~if I’d known you wait for five days of fever with sinus infection, I’d have gone to work instead. I do already feel a bit better today.

      Actually, I forgot the dill the last time I made it, and it was good. I do prefer it with the dill~it’s subtle, not in-your-face.
