Green bean soup

i don't think I have posted this before. I came up with a good match of mothers soup.
It's really green bean and potato in creamy sauce. Last time I made it I ate too much. Caution, it's addicting.

    I'm with you on this. Potato makes a great thickener, too.   I would add more mashed potatoes.  
     
    ... flour, cornstarch and roue;  this must be made by someone that didn't have enough potaoes to start.

    As long as you're adding sour cream might as well toss in a blintz.

    Recipe sounds good to me, too.  I'd probably add a little Worcestershire.

    Hey, you can try what you like. All I know is that it came out great as described.
    I was looking at the recipe again. I sort of scanned the web to guess at which concoction might be like mothers.

    Wow, I just search gregs page, and my page comes in near top. It hasn't been like that for about 15 years since I first found it in infoseek.

    I don't like the potatoes mushy. Adding mashed might be fine. Im not a cook. I also don't like the soup too thick.

    Some day soon, I will not have gregs page on Pitt server, or as long as it lasts. I retired from Pitt. All my stuff will be transferred to my zekfrivolous.com website.

    Cream of celery would work fine but try carmaling some onions, just cook slowly till they turn light brown and cook on low so they don't burn in some butter and oil and/or roast some garlic till it's soft. It should give the casserole some nice fuller flavor no one will notice there aren't mushrooms.
