Crock Pot Potato Chowder

picture of bread bowl and soup comes from realmomkitchen.blogspot.com none of mine came out in focus because our newer camera is out on loan for baby photo's and our old one just doesn't focus all the time. Hers looks 1000 times better than mine anyway.
Cameron is all smiles because he thought having your soup
in a bread bowl was the coolest thing ever!
Crock pot Potato Chowder recipe comes from $5 Dinners.com

8 cups diced potatoes ($.80)
1/3 cup onion, chopped ($.18)
3 knorr bouillon cubes (these are two teaspoons in size $.10, now I used regular bouillon cubes so I needed 6 of them to equal the Knorr ones)
6 cups water
1 10 ¾ ounce can of condensed cream of chicken soup ($.59)
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese ($1.29)
½ lb bacon, cooked and crumbled ($.85)
Dried parsley or sliced green onions for garnish - optional

Combine potatoes, onion, water, bouillon, and chicken soup in the crock pot.Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until potatoes are tender. Add cream cheese to crock pot and blend.Top with bacon and parsley or onions before serving
