Creamy Potato Soup Recipe

This is an all time favorite recipe using potatoes that I can create from memory.  I hope you will try my homemade creamy potato soup recipe. My best dishes are created when I use what we have in the kitchen on hand.  Today I had a bag of fresh Idaho potatoes, bacon defrosting from the freezer box and some fresh parsley from the greenhouse.
