Chunky Cheese Potato Soup

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

2 quarts water (or 1″-2″ of water covering the potatoes

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

9-12 C. shredded cheddar cheese

salt and pepper to taste

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!

    When I saw that video, my mouth dropped. She’s like six? I play the violin, and wonder how she plays so well at such a young age? Think of what her teacher must be like?
    Many Blessings,

    Oh yes, the little violinist was spectacular! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve been playing violin for about five years now and I can attest that the skill that little girl showed is no week’s worth of practice! 😉 I can’t play that well! 😀
