soup's on

I'm a bit late to the party, but wanted to share my "go-to" soup recipe for Jodi's Soup Bowl. during the winter months, I make this at least once a week! I hope you try and enjoy it as much as we do!!

Ham & Cheese Chowder
3 cups water
4-6 medium potatoes, diced
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup diced onion
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup flour
1 quart milk
4 cups sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
2 cups cooked, cubed ham

Add potatoes, celery, onion, salt and pepper to boiling water. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes tender. In a separate large saucepan, heat milk and melt butter in warm milk. When butter has melted, gradually whisk in flour. Stir constantly while cooking. Add cheese and stir until melted. Combine cheese mixture to veggie mixture. Add diced ham. Heat thoroughly. Serve with your favorite bread!
