Yummy Soup For the Soul!

I don't know about you, but I love a good soup on a chilly night! This soup is so delightful, I have to share it!

Creamy Ham and Potato Soup:

3 1/2 Cups peeled and diced potatoes
1/3 Cup diced celery
1/3 Cup finely chopped onion
1/2 Cup diced carrots
1 Cup diced cooked ham
3 1/4 Cup chicken broth
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon pepper
5 Tablespoon butter
5 Tablespoon flour
2 Cups milk

Combine all the vegetables (I actually put in a little bit more of the veggies than what was called) ham and broth in a stockpot (because I added a little more veggies, I also added a little water to the stockpot.) Bring to a boil and cook over med heat until potatoes are tender (about 10-15 min.)

In a separate saucepan, melt butter. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick. Slowly add in milk so lumps don't form. Continue stirring over med-low heat until thick, 4-5 minutes.

Stir in milk mixture to stock pot, cook until heated through.

Top with shredded cheese, green onion, and bacon, if desired.

That does look very delicious. I'll have to see if Tom can make this for me since I have a slight cold at the moment.
