Ingredients:  
3 1/2 c. peeled and diced potatoes
1/3 c. diced celery
1/3 c. chopped onion
3/4 c. diced cooked ham (I add closer to 2 c.)
3 1/4 c. water
2 tbsp. chicken bouillon granules
1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste
1 tsp. ground pepper, or to taste
5 tbsp. butter
5 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 c. milk

Directions:
Directions:
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 so as not to allow lumps to form, until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick. (The recipe says 4-5 minutes, but it usually takes me 20 min. or more.)
3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
