Recipe I'd like to share
I tried a new recipe today and really liked it, so I thought I'd share it with ya'll

Potato and Leek Soup (with my personal modifications)

Things you need:
3 Medium potatoes, or 4 small potatoes chopped into cubes
2 Leeks chopped
1 large onion finely chopped
4 tbs. butter
2 tbs. flour
4 cups chicken stock or broth
1 tsp. celery salt
1/2 tsp. parsley
1 tbs. garlic powder
1 tbs. ground black pepper
1 cup milk

Chop off bottom and top green part of leek and dispose.  You will only be using the the white and light green part of the leek.  Then chop the leek into thin slices and cut each slice in half.  Finely chop onion.  Melt butter in large saucepan, then add the chopped onion and leek.  Sautee on medium until onions and leeks are tender.

Add flour and stir in thoroughly.  Slowly add chicken stock and continue stirring.  After adding all of the chicken stock, add potatoes and seasonings.  Bring soup to a boil, then decrease temperature and allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are cooked all the way.  Add milk and stir thoroughly.  Remove from heat and serve.

Hope you guys like it.  I know I loved it :3
