1 1/2 cups sliced celery
1 cup carrots, peeled and diced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme, or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

4 cups red potatoes, peeled and cubed, about 2 pounds

Sauté bacon in a stockpot over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add onion, celery and carrot and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until veggies are soft, about 10 minutes.
