Potato Soup- La Madeline CopyCat

I went to a lunch at a friends house recently and she served this delicious Country Potato Soup! Her name is Sara and she also has twins, but they are 8weeks old and SHE had several women over for lunch.. including all of their kids... and her own... talk about crazy super woman! Anywho, she told me the recipe for this soup and I found it online and made it tonight, it was very good! Enjoy!
