Potato Cheese Soup

1 cup of finely chopped onion
1 cup of finely chopped celery
2-3 cups of potatoes

1 pint of half and half
1 pint of milk (2 cups)
1/2 T sugar
1/2 tsp. of salt
pepper to taste

1/2 cup of butter
3/4 cup of flour

8oz. of Velveeta cheese

Shredded carrots
dried parslsey

*Put the potatoes, celery and onions in a large pot. Cover with water (don't put too much water, just enough to cover the potatoes) and cook until potatoes are done - but not mushy. Don't drain the water.

*While the potatoes are cooking, mix the half and half, milk, sugar, salt and pepepr in a bowl. Set aside.

*Melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. Slowly add the flour (I usually use a whisk). After the butter and flour are mixed together, slowly pour in the milk mixture. Continue stirring until the mixture is very warm and getting thick. Add the velveeta cheese and continue stirring until the cheese has completely melted.

*Add your cheese mixture directly to the large pot of potatoes, onion, celery and water. Mix all together and you have the yummiest soup ever!
