ISO really good TNT potato soup

I need a recipe for a good potato soup.
Cannot have skin and cannot have anything like chives. Has to be seasonings that will dissolve and can be easily swallowed. Also, one that can be frozen in containers and heated in the microwave. And will keep at least for a weeks worth of lunches, all different containers, of course.
That easy enough for you??
I've never made potato soup before, or I would not be asking. TIA

OOOOO do I have the soup for you!
Here's what I use, but with changes.
Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup - Allrecipes

1st, I use half and half, not cream
I dont like many chunks in mine, I use an immersion blender and get it smooth. The starch in turn thickens it, I use 4 TB butter, 2 TB flour. Otherwise it's glop.
I dont use cilantro, but double the dried tarragon.
I use twice the chicken broth, or again, it's glop.
I think thats it, if I think of something else I'll come back.
Otherwise, I LOVE it!!

Oh, texasgirl, I have a great potato soup recipe I've been making since 1964 that seems to fit your requirements. I developed it then and my family loves it. I'm not where I can get to the recipe right now. I'll make a note and post it for you tomorrow.

My guess, suzie, is the soup is for her DH who is having some swallowing challenges and the bacon would be problematic.

That is correct.
He can only do soft foods.

I thought that right after i sent it.... i recalled a few threads.
When i blend it the bacon disintegrates. I think simmering the cooked bacon helps that along. I made it for my DH's aunt once that had the same problem.
I guess I must really blend the crud out of it!!! i dont like chunks of anything in my potato soup.
