Irish Potato Soup

The letter of the day is I and no better time for the letter I than right before the Irish Holiday St. Patricks Day. Do you all know who St. Patrickn was? The story goes that St. Patrick is the reason that there aren't any snakes in Iresland because he chased them all out. But there is even more to St. Patrick than the story of the snakes there is also the story of how he shared the trinity of the father, son and holy spirit through a shamrock.


Irish Potato Soup
•2 tablespoons of Irish butter

•2 medium sized onions

•3 large potatoes, washed & peeled

•1 cube chicken bouillon

•2 cups of milk

•1 clove garlic, crushed

•1 teaspoon dried parsley

•3 pieces of celery, chopped

•1 pinch ground black pepper & salt

•1 ½ cup of grated cheese

Thinly slice the onions and potatoes and add to a pan with melted Irish butter. Add the chicken bouillon, celery, dried parsley, garlic and season with salt & pepper. Cover the pan allowing the vegetables to soften under a low heat, do not let them brown. Add milk and mix until soup becomes thick then stir in cheese until fully melted. Serve piping hot with a few slices of buttered bread and enjoy. Irish potato soup is extremely cheap and easy to make which makes it a great dish to cook and serve to family and friends.
