Matriarchy: Today, my mom handed me an old newspaper recipe for potato soup. Later, one of my Facebook friends mentioned making potato soup for dinner, and I knew the universe was telling me what to make for dinner. The old recipe made SIX quarts of soup, and that was too much for my over-stuffed fridge, so I made a third of it. Still got more than 2 quarts. The old recipe was pretty bland, too - like liquid mashed potatoes. I perked it up a bit with garlic, cheese, and hot sauce. My mother and vegetarian daughter ate it up, but my spouse and I felt like it needed meat. Then I spotted the kielbasi in the fridge. Sliced and sauteed until it was crispy at the edges, it was perfect with the soup ladled over it. I even had some chives left over from T-Day. My belly is warm and full. Newly-renovated recipe: Potato Soup, Maybe with Kielbasi

Matriarchy: This soup is fast-becoming a wonderful cheap base for all sorts of things. It took less than half an hour to make 3 quarts of soup. We can add curry or pesto, all sorts of leftover or grilled meat, veggies, fresh herbs, bacon, seafood. Ooo... saffron.
