Cream of Fresh Potato Soup

Cream of Fresh Potato Soup is a recipe from my mom that she made as I was growing up. When I was sick over the holidays, this soup and Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup were the only dishes that sounded good. Mike, bless his heart, went to the store during a snow storm to get the ingredients and whip a batch of Cream of Fresh Potato Soup. It was amazing. Warm, nostalgic, creamy, hearty, and flavorful.

Cream of Fresh Potato Soup
·1 slice bacon, fried and crumbled
·3 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
·1 medium carrot, chopped or grated
·1 stalk celery, chopped
·2 TBS gluten free flour
·1 cup chicken broth
·3 cups milk
·2 tsp salt
·1 tsp fresh ground pepper
·2 TBS dried parsley

In a large pot, add chicken broth, potatoes, carrot, and celery. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10-20 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, stir constantly until heated through. Serve.
