"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

4 c. potatoes
2 c. diced carrots (I like to shred mine)
1/2 c. minced onions
2 tsp. salt
4 c. water
1 10 oz. package frozen broccoli
3 T. chicken base or 1 bouillon cube
3 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. flour
1 T. dry mustard
1 lb. cheese (I don't use this much, just add to taste)
2 c. chopped celery (optional)

Prepare potatoes, carrots, and onions. Place in large
pot and add salt and water. Cook until vegetables are
tender, about 20 minutes. Add broccoli, chicken base,
and milk. Simmer for 5 more minutes. In separate pan,
melt margarine and add flour and dry mustard; stir to
make roux mixture. Add to soup and stir until
thickened. Add cheese to soup. Stir till cheese is
melted. Keep hot, but do not boil, until ready to serve.
