Recently, Mari at Once Upon A Plateposted some wonderful tomato soup in the sweetest little "tureens." It turns out that the tureens were actually covered sugar bowls. Mari was kind enough to share the pattern, Rose Chintz by Johnson Brothers. I bought some, and they worked perfectly this past weekend when I made potato soup for Mr. Maison and I.
Potato Soup: Saute onions, carrots and celery in olive oil. Then add water and diced potatoes and salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are done, and then add in butter and half and half (I have used regular milk or heavy cream also).
