Cheese and Potato Soup

This recipe was from Epicurious and a group of us tried it out. It was easy and fabulous. I didn't have ham but I had thick sliced bacon so I fried up about 5-6 pieces and tore it in pieces. Then instead of vegetable oil, I used the bacon grease to fry the veggies in. (Yea, I know, not very healthy.) It gave the soup a wonderful flavor though. Instead of cheddar cheese I used a mixture of parmesan and mozzerella. The soup was a big hit with everyone in my family and our company. Next time I will remember to buy ham and try following the directions just to mix things up a bit.

Here's a link to the original recipe.

Library Project
The library project is coming along. We have most of the shelves up but need to attach a few to the walls yet. The book organizing will take us a couple of weeks unless we can move it into high gear. We are trying to catalog the books, group them in piles by subject according to the Dewey Decimal System and then we will actually start shelving them. We want to group them first in order to determine how much space each subject will take. We've even found a few to get rid of (about 7 so far).

Your soup looked GOOD! I typed up my post last night but need to go over it and add some missing links. I've been sick (still am) so I haven't had much energy but will finish up tonight.

I'm gonna try your way next time and throw it in the slow cooker.

Your soup looks nice and thick. Next time I will cut my veggies smaller and hopefully it will turn out a little thicker.
