Old Fashioned Potato Soup

  • 1/2 pound bacon, fried, drained and diced (save 1 tablespoon of the drippings)
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups carrots, diced
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 & 1/2  cups milk

Add diced vegetables to bacon and 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings; cover with water, being careful to not add too much water.  Add parsley flakes, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat until veggies are tender.  Remove from heat, add the milk, return to stove and heat just to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Taste, add more seasoning if desired.
