Potato Cauliflower Soup

It's been rainy and cold all day ... a perfect day to make a pot of soup for dinner.  I felt fairly adventurous as I searched through the freezer and cupboards for soup makings.  The fun thing about making soup is that even the most unlikely combination of ingredients can be wonderful together.

 
 
 


Here is what I came up with:

Potato Cauliflower Soup

4-5 slices of bacon
1 medium yellow onion
3 stalks of celery
3 large Russet potatoes
1 bag of frozen cauliflower
48 oz. chicken broth

Cut the bacon into small pieces, and cook it in the soup pot.  Finely chop the onion and celery, and add it to the bacon.  Saute till tender.  Peel and dice potatoes.  Add potatoes and cauliflower to the pot.  Cover with chicken broth.  Simmer until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.  Use a hand blender (or regular blender) to puree soup.  Salt to taste.  Top each bowl with a sprinkle of grated cheese.  (I'll bet sour cream would be good, too.)

 
 
This soup turned out really, REALLY good!  (There are plenty of leftovers in the fridge for later in the week.)

I haven't forgotten that I promised to share pictures from the greyhound gathering in California over the weekend.  There are a lot of them, and I am still working to get them formatted.
