Sometimes as an at home parent, a dog day afternoon comes along. Actually, more than you'd like to admit. You have been called upon by everyone else throughout the week. Schedules are shifted without your knowledge. People make plans and forget to tell you. A family crisis arises. And more.. In the middle of it all, you put on your super parent at home cape and rise to the occasion. With no groceries, no time, no patience, a phone constantly ringing, children running in and out, the dogs begging at your side; you whip up this little number in less than an hour. The kids loved it. They gave it two thumbs up. Siskel would be proud. Hooray would be jealous. You are pleased and think...oh, to be a dog.

Ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Vidalia Onion
  • 5 Celery Stalks
  • 1/4 Cup Fennel
  • 1 Pound Applewood Smoked Bacon
  • 5 Medium Sized Red Potatoes
  • 4 Cups Organic Chicken Broth (32 Ounce Box)
  • Salt & Pepper

Preparation
  1. Medium chop the onion and celery. Finely chop the fennel.
  2. Cut the bacon into lardons, or small strips.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron pot on medium. Add the onion, celery and fennel and cook about 8 minutes.
  4. Add the bacon and continue to cook uncovered about another 15 minutes until the bacon has cooked well.
  5. While the bacon is cooking, cut the potatoes into thin slices. I use a mandolin because it slices quickly and the potatoes will cook fast and even in the soup.
  6. Add the potatoes and toss.
  7. Add the chicken stock, cover and reduce to medium low and simmer about 20 minutes.

Notes
As an option you may add a bit of half and half at the end to make a creamier soup, but remember this will add calories.
