Potato Soup

(I can't figure out how to fix this photo. It looks correct in my files so I don't know why it is sideways. You will just have to tilt your head.)

4 cups chicken broth

1 cup celery chopped

1/2 onion chopped

5 cups diced potatoes

1 pint (2 cups) half and half

1 pint (2 cups) milk

1 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup flour

8 oz cheese whiz OR 8 oz Velveeta OR 1 can condensed cheese soup (we have used Velveeta)

Cook veggies in broth until tender. In separate pan, melt butter, add flour and stir. Add the flour/butter mixture to the cooked veggies. Stir well. Add half and half & milk, stir well. Add cheese, salt and pepper, stir well. Heat completely and serve. You can also add bacon bits and broccoli with the celery and onion if you want. I like the bacon bits.
