Easy Mashed Potato and Ham Soup Dinner

I decided to have some soup when it started to get cooler. My husband loves creamy soups so I decided to try a new easy dinner idea. As I started looking at the recipe I realized I didn’t have 1/2 the ingredients. So I decided I would make my own version of mashed potatoe soup and it turned out WONDERFUL!

This is a perfect leftover ham soup! Love using the leftovers! So here is my version of a potato soup with ham:
