Aunt Fae’s Potato Soup

Mmmmmm….perfect for a cold winter day! (This picture is one of my alterations of this recipe; I added ground beef to it.)
This family recipe is lo-cal and hearty. It came from my husband’s great aunt, Fae. 
Begin with a large pot, melt some butter and saute celery and onion.  This will most certainly get your tase buds fired up!  Once they are cooked, you add 6 peeled and diced potatoes, 5 diced carrots (or one package frozen carrots or baby carrots), 5 chicken boullion cubes, and 3 cups water.  Simmer the mixture for about a half hour.  Then add 2 cups milk and 1 cup shredded cheddar.  Heat and stir until the cheese melts.  And, voila!  The soup is ready! 
I have been known to add beef to this soup.  I think it would compliment a roast very well too.
