Right now it's It's 19 degrees in Columbus, which is still better than the other day when it dropped down to 12 degrees, a record low.
Subsequently the standard greeting in these parts is, "Hi, how you doing, don't you hate this cold?"
Seems we all do.
But if this prematurely frigid weather has got you down there's an antidote: a nice hot bowl of potato soup.
And so over manys the cold snowy winter I mastered the art of potato soupery.
Actually it turned out that there wasn't a whole lot to master, and it's a pretty quick fix.
So here's my recipe for potato soup, feel free to use it to get you through the weekend freeze until the weather goes back up into the 50's next week, as it's predicted to do both here and in Buffalo.
Boil until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the milk and heat, but don't boil.
Ladle the soup into a bowl then top with the cheddar cheese.
Enjoy, and stay warm! 8)
