    Going to try this one tonight:

    Ingredients

    • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
    • 1/3 cup diced celery
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
    • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
    • 3 1/4 cups water
    • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
    • 5 tablespoons butter
    • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups milk

    Directions

    • Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
    • In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
    • Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
