Alphabet, up to "U"

For my "U" soup, I chose Ultimate Potato Soup from right here at AR. I LOVE potatoes, in any way, shape, or form...http://allrecipes.com/recipe/ultimate-potato-soup/detail.aspx is the link. It's actually a simple soup, of potato, celery, chicken broth
This was a very basic soup, and actually I found it rather boring, but that's just my opinion! One of "my ladies" used to make a potato soup for her family, using a milk base, spuds/carrots/celery and adding sliced hot dogs. She'd thinken hers with "potato
flakes." A rather "novel" idea, I thought.
I guess where I'm going with this is, that potato soup, is simply, "potato soup." However, I simply have no idea why this particular recipe would be named "Ultimate" potato soup... again, my opinion! Then, of course, there's the fact that of the many times
I've boiled spuds for soup, I think only once I actually followed a recipe. I like carrot in mine, for color and taste. I toss in whatever seasonings I feel it needs as it cooks... I doubt that I've made it the same way twice!
Perhaps for this series, my choice for "U" was a poor one... but then, how many soups are there out there who's name begins with the letter U?
So, live and learn... IF you have a soup you like that begins with the letter U, by all means share, and I might just make another one... As hot as it's getting here, however, I'm anxious to finish the alphabet series. Yesterday was, I believe near or at
105! Not really a "soup" type of day, in my world.
So, with 6 more to go, I'll wish you all to be...
happy, healthy, and cook crazy!
