Creamy Chicken Vegetable Soup

Creamy Chix Vege Soup

With Salmon as the main course, I need a soup & some carbo to compliment the meal.

But rice & noodles are too boring…mash is kinda too heavy too.

Thus, I decided to make a soup that consisted of potato (carbo)…
This is what I call best of both worlds….U get carbo in a soup!
