Potato Cumin Soup

My friend Marrya gave me this recipe and it is SO good.  It doesn't sound like it would be that great, but it is in my top 3 favorite soups of all time. 

1/4 c. butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 c. flour
6 c. chicken broth (I substitute water and bouillon and it's fine!)
6 medium potatoes, cut into bite sized cubes
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 c. medium cheddar cheese, grated
2 c. whole milk (I cheat and use half and half and it's even better)

Saute onion and garlic in butter.  Add flour and stir to dissolve.  Add broth, potatoes, cumin, salt, and pepper.  Simmer over low heat for 20-25 minutes.  Turn down heat.  Add cheese and milk, stirring until soup is thickened.

Hey, this is Jennifer from The Craft Patch. You left me a comment asking about how I made the finger puppets. I didn't use a pattern. I just sketched out on paper what I wanted each to look like and then used my sketches as a pattern to cut out the felt. If you use mine as your example, I think you could have success making them on your own. Good luck, and if you end up making some, post them! I'd love to see how they turn out!

P.S. your recipes look delicious!
