Picture of Holiday Potato Soup

I did some research on an old cookbook that I own and stumbled across some interesting articles about US presidents of the past. I recall viewing a news clip about Walter Scheib the executive chef at the White House during the Clinton and Bush administrations. He had been discussing what types of food he served the first families and he mentioned the women were more adventurous than the men were and the women preferred to eat healthy. Chelsea decided to go vegetarian in her senior year of high school and I got the impression it threw off the chef's menu a bit. I had to chuckle because Walter Scheib said Hillary was in a bad mood one day and asked him to make her some fajitas.  She said: "Sometimes good is better than nutritional."

I am taking advantage of the holidays to give you a "good" loaded potato soup recipe that I dreamed up! I was happy the first time around it was perfect, well  . . . maybe not so perfect, I made it from gold potato's and I was not happy with the color or texture, so I used russet this time and blended the potato's. You can have them simple or loaded, either way is very good. Let's get started!

Nothing better than a hot bowl of potato soup on a cold day.
