Have you ever shipped a 5 lb bag of potatoes to New York City

Mom’s Potato Soup
Regina Garriga – Manager @Southern Heritage Home

When my middle daughter moved to NYC after she got her graduate degree in she was very proud and wanted to make it on her own but struggled. I mentioned that she should make the potato soup recipe that she loved and she said it wasn’t in the budget this month. As a mother you know what I did … I shipped everything she needed for the soup, even a 5 lb bag of potatoes and enough cash for her to buy the perishable items. In my haste to get it to UPS, I sent her my recipe card so now when I make the Potato Soup recipe I have to call her.
