Start by peeling 4-5 potatoes.
Next chop them into 1/2 in cubes.
Peel 1-2 carrots and chop carrots into small pieces.
Chop one small onion.
Now mix all three together in a pot and cover with water.
Then boil until potatoes are soft.
Drain water and place pot of vegetables back on the burner on medium heat.
Next add 1/4 stick butter and probably 1-2 cups of milk.
Now comes the part that took me a while to figure out. How do I get the sour cream into the soup and it not look lumpy? I wanted that smooth creamy texture, like you get when you get the country potato soup from McAllister’s Deli. Then it hit me....
...on the head as it fell out of the cabinet...my Tupperware gravy shaker. So I rubbed the knot on my head and then filled it up and started shakin' it! So in the gravy shaker put about 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sour cream, and then fill the rest with milk. Then shake it all up...do a little dance if ya want, cause you can and it will taste better then! ;)
If you don't have a gravy shaker then use whatever lidded container you have and mix it all up.
After you have it all mixed together add this to your pot. Then fill with milk till all the potatoes are covered, and cook till thick and creamy. Also add plenty of salt, and some pepper cause without it, the soup will be very bland!
Once you have it to the consistancy you want to be then put it in your favorite bowl...
Throw a little cheese and bacon bits....the real ones cause they are so much better, and you're worth it...and enjoy with your a big glass of sweet tea, or whatever wets you whistle!
(Also, I like to make some cornbread muffins to eat with eat my yummy soup.)
