Loaded Potato Soup

Potato Soup 148

 ~  Mary ~

 Ahhhh February, it may be the shortest month day wise, but it’s always been the longest lasting in my eyes. It’s the month that winter decides to tighten its icy grip, and we all decide it’s time to hunker down. But this year, this year  February has decided to greet us with a full week of weather in the upper 40’s.  Honestly, I’m speechless, and I’m still going to have my potato soup, but I might just round it off with a popsicle for dessert!

    Ah, nothing like a bowl of potato soup to warm the soul. Love it. Hasn’t our winter been weird? Which only means we’ll probably have a blizzard in March!
