Bacon Bean Soup

Bean soup is an old family favorite. I do not make it the same way my great grandmother did. I'm a wee bit lazy compared to the beloved Matriarch of our family. 

What you need:

2 Yukon gold potatoes, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 pound bacon, chopped
2 cans white beans, undrained
2 cups milk
2 tbsp garlic powder 
2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp pepper
2 tbsp onion powder

What to Do:
Sauté the potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and bacon until bacon is crisp. Stir in your seasonings. Then stir in your beans and milk. Let the soup simmer on low for three hours, or until all your veggies are tender. Allow to thicken up overnight in the fridge, reheat the next day for a great dinner.
