Mystery recipe: Baked Potato Soup
Another recipe that I tried and thought I'd remember long enough to write down. Apparently not! But I'll tell you the basics - I started with butter and flour, added milk, got a sauce base. Added lots of baked potato flesh, and, I'm fairly sure, onions and garlic. I stirred in more milk, and a dollop of creme fraiche that I had handy, add finished with some shredded cheese and thin strips of ham. Good, but not exceptional.
Oh well. This is a miserable weekend, by the way. We're showing our apartment - yes, we're moving in late spring, more on that later - and we've been cleaning, cleaning and cleaning some more. In the middle of this... cleaning frenzy... I've managed to catch strep throat. It hurts like you wouldn't believe. The only thing I want to eat is ice cream.
