Because of the lack of spring at our house, soup has been a go to meal.  I decided to try Rainy Day Foods creamy potato soup.  It is part of their Quick and Easy line.  It certainly was very easy to make.  You simply add 1 cup of water and 1/3 cup of soup mix for each serving.  I have 2 crockpots, so I made 2 different kinds. I put 8 cups of water in each crockpot along with 2 2/3 cups of mix.   I left one as the regular potato soup and in the other I added about a ¼ cup of dehydrated broccoli and ¾ c. of freeze dried cheese.  I let it all heat for a couple of hours, stirring occasionally.  The result was some really delicious soup!  My kids thought it was so good and so did my picky husband.  They both were a nice thick soup with a great taste.  It didn’t take us long to devour all of it.  You could add other things to the basic soup such as corn, cauliflower or clams.  Rainy Day Foods sells this soup in a #10 can or in their Quick and Easy Bucket.  I will definitely be keeping a lot of this on hand.
