Easy & Delicious Potato Soup

             Hey folks! It's still soup season, right? I hope so because I have a really yummy potato soup recipe to share with you today! I actually got it from my mom, who probably got it off some website, but it's too good not to share! While I mostly follow the recipe, I will include the minor tweaks we make too. Enjoy!

What You'll Need:

-2 C. water
-2 C. potatoes, cubed
-1/2 C. carrots
-1/2 C. celery
-1/4 C. onion
-1 tsp. salt
-1/4 tsp. pepper
-1/4 C. butter
-1/4 C. flour
-2 C. milk
-2 C. cheddar cheese

*Combine water, potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, salt and pepper in a large pot. (We don't use celery as Myka used to be able to not eat it, so we just never have it on hand any more. We also usually have more onion and potatoes than it calls for because I just eyeball it instead of measuring it out. Ha ha Just be sure you have enough water to cover everything so it cooks well. It will turn out fine, even if you add closer to 3 or 4 cups. Trust me.)

*Boil 10-12 minutes. (It may take longer if you get a little overzealous with the veggies, which I have also done. :D)

*In a small pan, melt butter, add flour, stir in milk slowly, and cook until thick. Add cheese and stir until melted.

*Pour sauce into undrained vegetables. Heat and serve.

             That's it! Super easy and super yummy! :)
