My 12 year old’s favorite meal is potato soup! I grew up not liking it very much. That is, until I added cheese to it. Then, it was suddenly delicious. Everything’s better with cheese, right?
3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
1/3 cup diced celery (optional, we always leave it out)
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup diced cooked ham
3 1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
2 cups milk
- Choose to cook the soup ahead of time and then freeze it;
- Make this meal at the beginning of the week so you won’t need to freeze it; or
- Freeze everything but the potatoes.
You could also go ahead and prep the potatoes as long as you planned to eat them within 2-3 days. If you keep them in water in the refrigerator, they will not turn brown.
