Potato Soup With Ham, Member susanlozado

This is a great recipe for Potato Soup. Even my picky husband loves it! I make one half of what the recipe calls for to have a smaller portion. I'm not sure if it will freeze well or not, and I don't want to waste any, since our appetites are not that big to finish the whole pot.
