    I can't wait to try your baked potato soup that sounds delicious! I love baked potato soup. I like it thick enough to coat the spoon, but fluid enough to have nice broth... Yummmmm.....

    One of my favorite soups (I tend to like the "creamy" soups best) - your recipe sounds fabulous...another one I'll be making when autumn arrives (we have 60's headed our way - hurray!).
