- 3/4 ++ cup diced ham (the Hormel's or Smithfield's precooked and cubed works great... I used 2 packages). shopping list

How to make it
- Combine potatoes, celery, onions, ham, and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
- Stir in salt, pepper, and chicken bouillon.
- In a separate saucepan, melt butter over med-low heat. Whisk in flour stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. (Before I made the roux here, I took 2 minced cloves and sweated them in a Tbsp of olive oil..then the butter and roux)
- Slowly stir in milk, careful to not allow lumps to form until all the milk is added... then continue stirring over med-low heat until thick, about 5 minutes.
- Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook until heated through.
- Serve Immediately.....
- Make couch reservations and keep a pillow handy!!!

This sounds delicious, hearty and good for chilly weather comfort indeed, Dave. I am thinking of some hot, buttered buttermilk cornbread wedges on the side and some icy brews. *Bliss* I am saving your recipe for further culinary perusal...hehe. Th...morelunasea in Orlando loved it
