Potato Soup

This is so good in the winter and very filling. I didn't eat it for years after I bit my tongue and had stiches in it because I ate so much then. But I went back to it and it became one of Eric's favorite dishes. I think he makes it year round for his family. Sorry, I never measure. Just give it a try and make adjustments as you go along. You can't mess it up. Ok here's what you need:
4-5 large taters, diced
sour cream couple big glops
green onions 1 whole bunch chopped
garlic 2-3 cloves chopped
ham steak diced (optional)
butter couple spoonfuls
can of cream of celery soup
1 rib celery cut small
salt and pepper to taste
grated cheese
Put your diced taters and celery in a large pot, just covering with water or Chicken Broth, and boil until almost tender. Add ham steak, can of soup, green onions, garlic, butter, sour cream and as much milk as you think you will need. Allow it to simmer for about 15 mins., or celery and taters are tender. To thicken put 2 large spoonfuls of corn starch in a glass with just enough water to get it all wet and stir until no lumps. Add to soup and stir in. If it's not thick enough, do it again. Serve with cheese and warm rolls or bread. Very filling and yummy. varation: add chicken and corn for Chicken Corn chowder. Try adding BROCCOLI. For Clam Chowder--add some canned clams and the juice it's packed in.
