We love having this in bread bowls!
12 medium potatoes, diced
1/2 C. chopped onion
1 C. sliced celery
2 t. salt
1/2 t. celery salt

Cook above in water until potatoes are tender. Take out about half of the potatoes and mash, place back in pot.
In a separate pan melt until bubbly:
2/3 C. butter
Stir in quickly with wire whisk until smooth and bubbly (about one minute):
1/2 C. flour
Then quickly add:
1 C. milk
Stir until smooth then add:
5 C. milk
2 T. chopped parsley
4 chicken boullion cubes

Stir this until cheese is melted. For a thicker soup, add more cheese. Serves 12-15
Susannah was going downstairs…and Isaiah asked if he could play with her hair (he loves playing with his sisters’ hair! He comes up to you often–and mostly when he is supposed to be going to bed–and says, “Can I play wif ‘our hair?” How can you resist?!)
Susannah said no, that she had to take a shower.
He asked, “After you take a shower?”
“No, because I’m going to bed after that”
Noah then put his head closer to Isaiah’s and said, “play with mine! You can play with mine!”
Isaiah didn’t think that was such a great deal!
