Potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tsp. diced garlic
salt and pepper
Put it in the pot with enough water to just cover. Boil until the potatoes are done through, turn the heat down until it is just simmering. Add some butter. I believe I added about a 1/4 cup. Add milk. I really don't know how much milk I added maybe a cup, just enough to turn the soup white. Then thicken the soup with a mixture of water and flour. I usually take a small coffee mug, fill it half and half, then whip it with a fork until all the lumps are out. Slowly pour it into the soup while stirring. Cook a bit longer.
Taste, add more salt and pepper as needed.
