Cheesy Potato Soup

 This week's Sunday Dinner: Italian chicken, garlic green beans and potato soup.  The soup was something new that I tried.  I found a recipe that sounded good and then I changed it to fit my liking.  Velveeta is NOT my thing...way too processed.  SO, I changed a few things, added a few things...and this is what we came up with.  Everyone here loved it.  Hope you do too.  :)

Cheesy Potato Soup:

32 ounces of half and half
6 cups of sharp cheddar cheese  (or 16 ounces of Velveeta) 
4 potatoes diced with their peels on
1/2 Cup of Fresh chives or green onions chopped
3 stalks of celery diced very small
sea salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
8 ounces sour cream


bacon - fried and crumbled up
shredded cheese
1/2 cup chives or chopped green onions
fresh parsley

Pay attention.  This is really tricky. ;)

Throw all soup ingredients in crock pot or whatever pot you have. I use my crock pots ALL the time.  I love those things.   You could put some broccoli in there too.  I just thought of that.  I think that would be yummy. 
Stir a few times while you are waiting for the cheese to melt.
Serve when potatoes are soft.
Sprinkle with toppings.

Very easy and very yummy.  A little fattening maybe, but still healthy.
