Potato Soup
The potatoes are washed, peeled, and sliced thin crosswise (not diced!).
Cover w/water & boil w/sliced onions & sometimes a bit of chopped celery, til done.
At the last minute you add "some" milk, salt & pepper. 

If we were really wealthy, we might fry a slice or two of bacon & crumple it up in the soup - but that was rare.

It's charm & appeal is that it is bland & filling, nutritious & easy to digest. It's even better the 2d & 3d day.

My sister & I now make it for our families, especially when anyone has been sickly in the family, one of the first things we try is WV-potato soup w/o the onions.
