Yummy! I added about a cup of cooked frozen peas with the potato puree - it was gone in thirty minutes!

Thick, creamy and yummy soup! I used 3 celery ribs and includes the leafy tops. Before pureeing, I set a little bit aside just to have a few chunks in the soup. I melted some of the cheese right in the soup as well as for garnish. Delicious! Thanx for a nice homey soup!
