2 slices bacon (optional... definitely didn't need it... just was in the mood, 5 weeks til baby comes right??)
1 tbl butter
1-2 chopped carrots
a few stalks chopped celery
1 medium chopped onion
a few cloves chopped garlic
1 large or 2 small red potatoes, diced
2 tbl flour
2 1/2 cups skim milk, plus 1 cup skim milk
Halibut, or another white fish like cod, cut into 1 inch pieces
parsley and/or chives (not pictured)
salt and pepper
Dice the bacon and cook it until crispy in your soup pan.
Remove with a slotted spoon to let some of the grease drain.
In the remaining bacon grease (theres not much left) add alllllll your veggies and garlic, the tablespoon of butter, and salt and pepper (and if youre not using bacon just sautee veggies in 2 tbl butter).
