Christopher's Creamy Carrot
and Potato Soup
When my now grown son Chris was in preschool, they were to print a recipe book based on the children and their parents' favorite recipes. Unfortunately it never became reality, but Chris, then age 4, and I, created a soup that has remained a family favorite.
As the cold weather approaches, this soup is sure to please.
(in the pictures I used my usual huge stock pot and doubled the ingredients...with these ingredients a pot a tad bigger than a Dutch Oven size will do)
5 c. chopped potatoes skins on
2 c. thin sliced celery
5 c. sliced carrots
1 1/2-2c. sliced onion
4 Tbl. flour
4 c. water
6 Tbl. softened butter
3 lb. ground beef cooked and drained
6 c. hot milk
S&P to taste
Prepare your potatoes, carrots, celery and onion, cover with water, and cook until tender. While doing that cook and drain the hamburger. When the veggies are getting tender, add the meat to the mixture and continue simmering.
Blend the butter and flour thoroughly. Then slowly add hot milk and continue stirring. Finally, add to the soup and as always when thickening something, stir very very frequently.
Continue simmering, season with S&P if desired.
