Recipe for some yummy Cheesy Loaded Baked Potato Soup!

I'm always trying out new recipes
and messing around in the kitchen coming up with new meals
so here's a yummy easy cheesy potato soup recipe.
I did of course work at O'Charley's for some time... So you might say they
inspired this a bit haha.

 About 5 medium sized red potatoes, cut in long slices, un-peeled! 
3 medium sized baking potatoes
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1/4 cup flour (more or less depending on desired thickness)
4 cups half-and-half
2 cups milk
16 ounces Velveeta cheese, melted
Garlic powder
Desired amount of bacon crumbles fried for topping (or bacon bits if you choose!)
Cheddar cheese (for topping as well)
1/2 cup fresh chives
1/2 cup fresh parsley

Dice potatoes (leaving red potatoes peeled, but go ahead and remove the peel off the baking potatoes) and 
cover in water, bringing to a boil.
Continue to boil for about 15 mins or until the potatoes are tender to your liking.
While potatoes are boiling,
melt margarine and slowly add flour.
Mix until smooth and place heat on low.
Gradually add half and half and milk stirring constantly (I used a whisk)
until smooth and begins to thicken up.

Melt Velveeta and add it to the creamy mixture.
Stir VERY well. 
Drain potatoes and pour potatoes into mix.
Continue to cook the mixture for about 30 mins on low heat.

Add cheese, bacon, parsley, and chives
AFTER placed into bowls.
Just a hint:
Add cheese first, and bacon on top.
