Slow Cooking Thursday - Homemade Potato Soup

I would love to have some good homemade potato soup since I am sick today! Of course, I didn't put this in the crockpot this morning, but I do have some in the freezer from the last time I made it. So, I'll be having a bowl of this for supper tonight. I may even make a pan of cornbread to go with it! For more great Slow Cooker Recipes visit Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

8 large potatoes, cubed
1 cup chopped onions
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 tablespoons dry parsley flakes
6 cups water
2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour, mixed with water

Preparation:
Place potatoes, onions, butter, bouillon, parsley flakes and water in the slow cooker. Cook all day on low. About 1/2 hour before serving; add milk and flour mixture. After the soup thickens it is ready to serve.

Note: Sometimes I'll add 1/2 block of Velveeta cheese and sour cream when I'm adding the milk and flour mixture for a loaded potato soup! You can even garnish with bacon & chives.
