Cheese-Potato Soup

Shalom, y’all,
    Yahoo!  Only one more birthday. My husband’s is the 13th. I will take him out on Saturday night.  I hope to but him a spiffy shirt and tie.  He’s hard to buy for.
    Friday night,  my daughter had a sleep over with two friends at our rental property.  It’s the perfect party place, just across the yard from our house.  Only one thing, I slept over there after midnight for “security” reasons… That’s when my trouble began. I had my son’s boy scout cot,  a doubled over foam mattress, my own bedding and two pillows; my night was still horrible.  I woke up many times (unusual for me) and got up at 7:30.  My back still isn’t back to normal.
   I will be painting the rental property today.  I like to paint. I listen to teaching CDs and I get MESSY!
  The following is my third installment in my Monday Soup Recipe series.  This is a great and easy recipe and everybody in my family enjoys it.  That can not be said for many of the recipes I prepare.  Most of the time five people like  something,  sometimes only 4.  I don’t make anything for less that four, usually.

                                                    CHEESE POTATO SOUP

                     3 medium potatoes, chopped (about 2 cups)
                     1 large onion, chopped (about one cup)
                     1 1/2 cups chicken broth  or chicken stock
                     8 oz. shredded cheese
                     Bacon bits (to taste)
     
Heat potatoes, onion, chicken stock to boiling.
Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
Place in a blender container; add cheese. (most blenders have a hot fill line at about two cups, do not over fill-it will explode, ask me how I know!)
Cover and blend on high speed until uniform consistency.
Sprinkle each serving with bacon bits.
 4 servings (about one cup each)

Note: I always  triple or quadruple this recipe.  It’s a lot of chopping, but remember I have six family members and making more is ONE LESS MEAL I HAVE TO PREPARE!!!!!!!
         I add cheddar flavored goldfish (Pepperidge Farm).  This is probably what makes this soup a favorite…

     It’s harvest time
     What have you planted?
