Tasty Tuesday: Potato and Ham Soup

This recipe got an 8! Yeah! That means J thought it was DELISH! He rarely rates above a 7 1/2, in fact, I'm not sure he's ever given anything a 10, so I'm really excited about my 8. One thing I could have done to make it better is cut up the ham into smaller pieces. J thought it'd be great to chop it like we did the onion. Besides that, all adults loved it! T liked the ham, but not the potatoes. He's in a picky stage so there isn't much he does like these days. Here's the recipe (from www.allrecipe.com)

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
1.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.
2.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.
3.Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
