When I was growing up, we had oyster stew every Christmas Eve. The only problem was, at that time (and age) my siblings and I didn’t like oyster stew (I love it now). Eventually, my mother got tired of us complaining about the stew, so she switched to Potato Soup. It is now a tradition in my family and my daughters expect it every Christmas Eve. This is a very easy to do soup and is very delicious and i fix it whenever the weather turns cold, as well as serving it on Christmas Eve.
Mom’s Potato Soup
12 strips bacon
2 cups potatoes, cut into small cubed
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup water
2 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans milk
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Cubed American cheese (I stack slices of American cheese and cube them.)
Heat through, but do not boil. Serve with crumpled bacon and cheese.
Why is Christmas like a day at the office? Because you do all the work, and the fat guy in the suit gets all the credit.
