This is my Gram's recipe. Gram can cook anything, and it turns out unbelievably delicious. Everything she has ever made has been the best thing I've ever tasted. I am lucky, because Gram taught me how to cook, and judging by my family's reactions, she taught me pretty darn well. I still call Gram a couple times a month for cooking questions - we talk at least once a day just to chat.
Gram's Potato Cheese Soup
Use about 3 lbs of white waxy potatoes (not russets.) Peel and cut into 1/2" cubes. Place in a pot with one finely chopped onion. Add enough water to cover, then add a little more. You want about an inch of water above the potatoes.
Bring to a boil, then cook till the potatoes are tender. Do not drain.
Add about a pound (more or less) of Velveeta cheese, a little at a time, until the texture becomes nice and creamy. Put in a little salt and a lot of black pepper.
Eat four or five bowls and have a big glass of milk with it, or if you really want to do it like Gram, eat it alongside a glass of Squirt poured from a can.
If you have been having a bad day, or especially if you recently got some upsetting news, make yourself some potato cheese soup. Then you can write my grandma a thank you letter (c/o me) for her mad recipe makin' skillz yo.
