OH my goodness! This recipe is FANTASTIC!! I made it for dinner last night and my husband and I both loved it! It is very easy and I had most of the ingredients on hand, so it was very inexpensive with basic ingredients.
I'm not a big celery fan, but I wanted the flavor in there... so what I did was take three celery stalks and just cut each celery stalk into two huge pieces, so that I had 6 large celery stalks stewing, but when the soup was done, I removed them! Also, I used minced onion instead of chopped onion just out of personal preference. Also, my husband wanted the soup just like it was, he loved it, but I wanted mine a little cheesy so I just added a handful of shredded cheddar cheese to the top of my bowl and stirred it in til it was mixed in really well. And then we ate til we were sick! It was SOOOOO good!!
TIP: Some people complained that their soup wasn't thick enough, and my gut feeling is that they didn't cook the flour mixture long enough. Just because the 4-5 minute cooking suggestion is in there, don't go by that if it isn't thick enough... if it isn't thick enough after that time elapses, crank the heat up some and cook another minute or two, it won't hurt a thing as long as you stir constantly. It is no different than cooking white gravy - it is the exact same ingredients. You must try this recipe, you won't be sorry!
