Easy Creamy Potato Soup

This is an easy one.  I actually made it to teach my kids about the revolutionary war and how people ate back then.

I was a bit worried about it's simplicity, but it's ended up being delicious.  Not only were there were no left-overs, there were disappointed sighs when it was discovered that the pot was scraped clean.

You know the way I do it.  No novels here.  A simple recipe calls for a simple introduction.
