10,000 views!!!!!!! (and 3 ingredient soup!)

WOW!! Can you believe we have had over 10,000 hits on Gourmet Momma?! All I can say is a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our readers, those that comment, and send in your questions or recipes! I started GM as a fun little outlet for me to share recipes with my friends and family, I never thought it would grow to be what it is now! So thank you!

So in celebration, I am sharing one of my favorite things....soup! And one of YOUR favorite things, a 3 ingredient meal!!! I know that it has been 100+ degrees here in Texas this week (I'm not even joking, its hotter than Hades!) but I still love soup! Enjoy!
And thank you again for all your support!!

Spinach and Potato Soup
Grocery List:
2 cans (14 1/2 oz each) chicken broth
3 cups refrigerated garlic mashed potatoes (from a 1.5-oz pkg)
1 box (16 oz) frozen creamed spinach

How to make it:
1. Heat broth in a large pot; add potatoes and cook over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally, 5 minutes or until simmering and slightly thickened (see Note).

2. Remove frozen spinach from pouch, add to potatoes, cover pot and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, whisking occasionally, until blended and spinach is heated through. (If soup is too thick, thin with hot water.) Pour into serving bowl; garnish if desired.

**Note: For garnish, remove 1/4 cup hot mashed potatoes before adding spinach. Drop potatoes from tip of a spoon in parallel lines, then pull tip of a knife across the lines, alternating direction between each pull. It will look all fancy! :)
