Hearty Potato Soup

6 medium potatoes

2 Carrots, diced

6 celery stalks, diced

2 qts Water

1 Onion, chopped

6 Tbsp Butter

6 Tbsp Flour

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

1 1/2 Cups Milk

In a large pot cook potatoes, carrots and celery in water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid and setting vegetables aside. In the same kettle, saute onion in butter until soft. Stir in flour, salt and pepper, gradually add milk, stirring constantly until thickened. Gently stir in cooked vegetables. Add 1 Cup or more of reserved cooking liquid until soup is desired consistency. (I use all the liquid)

For our family this recipe would need to be doubled. It just feeds 2 adults and 4 small children. :)
