Curried Mixed Potato Soup

Another Slapdash success! This is so easy to make and very forgiving. Here's what went in mine, adjust as necessary for your hungry group. I fed 5 with seconds for most of us. The blue cheese is awesome in this, don't leave it out unless you have to. Sub feta or more bacon for the saltiness if you do.

4 med-large all purpose potatoes
1 large organic sweet potato
4 green onions, sliced thin(with my new pink Komachi knife, Christmas from my brother)
2 garlic cloves, pressed
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 cups whole milk(mine's raw)
1 cup water
1/2 cup blue cheese
1+ cup whole milk yogurt
sprinkle of red curry powder, maybe 1 tsp or maybe less
little dash of salt and pepper

I baked the potatoes and skinned them mostly, cut into chunks and added to the pot. Poured on the milk, added the rest and heated for about 15-20 minutes on medium/medium-low(I didn't let it boil at all-barely simmered). Serve with crusty bread or crackers. My girls LOVED it... spoon is pointing to Amy scarfing hers down!
