PERFECT,CHICKEN & POTATO











































































The Cast of Characters: Small Russet potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, milk, flour (not pictured, because I’m an airhead), heavy cream, salt, pepper (not pictured, for the same aforementioned reason), Cajun spice (ditto), parsley, and thin bacon. The sour cream is optional, as is the cheese, which is obscured by the potatoes.

Start by slicing the bacon into small pieces…


This is about six slices. But if you want to use seven, I won’t tell anyone.
Throw the bacon into a soup pot over medium heat…
And stir it around until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp.
Remove the bacon from the pot…
And try with all your might not to eat it.
Note that this will be difficult.
Next, peel an onion and cut it in half…
Then, in each half, cut vertical slices…
Then cut in the other direction…
To dice!























































After that: The celery!
Slice two or three stalks into thinner strips…
Then cut the strips into a dice.
Next come the carrots. I don’t peel them, because then I feel rustic. I just scrub them really well…
Then I lop off the ends…
Cut them into sticks…
And cut the sticks into a dice.
Now you’ve got the basics ready!
Pour off most of the bacon grease from the pot, but leave a little in the pot for health and happiness in 2013.
Okay, happiness.
Throw the veggies in the pot over medium heat and let them start cooking.
