Potato Cheese Soup

I made this potato cheese soup last night, and it was the easiest and fastest thing! Delicious for a rainy day. We had it for lunch today and it was even better! All you need is: One box Au Gratin Potatoes, 2 cans chicken broth, 1 1/2 cup water, about 2 cups cheese,( I would have used a sharp cheese had I had it, but the mild cheddar was fine too ) 1 pint cream or half and half, and three fairly large potatoes. Cube potatoes, add to pot, pour in all except cheese. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Put lid on and let potatoes soften, stirring occasionaly. Season with salt and fresh cracked pepper. When potatoes are soft, about 45 min to 1 hour, add cheese, stir and serve with more cracked pepper. Delish!
Bon Appetit!

Okay Kris, I'm going to have to say something. I live a street away from your daughter. What a great reason to come bring me and your daughter, and your grandchildren some of what you are making every night. I don't see why that can't happen, especially when it's potato cheese soup!! What else do I have to do....beg??? Well then, please, please, please!!!! Looks delicious!!!

Potato soup is my favorite, remember me when you are on your way to Genn's and Krisit. Kevin and I are empty nesters now and we don't eat much. I could beg ... I am quite good at it. Looks yum yum yummy.
