Potato Soup in the Crockpot

8 potatoes peeled and chopped

1 med. white onion chopped

2 carrots, chopped small

2 ribs celery, chopped

1 can (2 C.) chicken broth

2 TBL. dried parsley

1 1/2 tsp.salt

1/4 tsp. white pepper

1 C. milk

1/2 C. Flour

green onions, chopped
bacon, fried and chopped
grated cheddar cheese

**Put all ingredients down to pepper into crock pot. Add water to within 1 inch of the top of the crock pot. Cook on high for 8 hrs. 1 hour before serving, put milk into container w/lid. Put flour in milk, and shake. Stir in milk/flour mixture into soup. Serve soup topped with green onions, bacon, and cheese as desired.

This is a very easy soup (I'm all about the easy). It is VERY good and my kids love it. Then of course my kids fight over who gets the last piece of broccoli, and eat artichokes. However, this is a good soup for kids because there's nothing "weird" in it, everything is chopped and diced small, and it's creamy. Also, you can serve it in a bread bowl like chowder and they think that's really cool.

I have two crock pots because I love them so much - a 5 qt and a 7 qt. I love using them to cook dinner. I just made turkey chili a couple of nights ago! The potato soup recipe sounds delicious!
