Potato Cheese Soup and Bread Bowls Recipe

     Soup-20 min prep; cooks for 40 minutes.  (serves 8)
     Bread Bowls-20 minute prep; 1-2 hours rising time, bakes for 15 minutes. (serves 8)

It's that time again:  crisp cool air, overcast days, my toes freezing off the minute I step out of bed.
And that means soup and bread bowls--yummy, cheesy, soup that you can mop up with a roll.
Or a roll so large it's really a bowl.  And you can eat that too!
There's nothing better.
(Except watching my kids do the dishes afterward).

Potato Cheese Soup
Boil until soft (not mushy):
3 C. water 
3 chicken bouillon cubes
4 Potatoes cubed
       *In a separate pan:
Saute until softened:
1 diced onion
1 C. chopped carrots
6 TBL butter
1/3 C. flour
           *Stir it into the butter and vegetables until it has all dissolved.
Combine vegetables into potato pot and add:
