Celery Soup and Sweet Potato Plant

I read this “Homemade” Celery Soup recipe from whattohavefordinnertonight’s Blog

and knowing that I like Celery Soup… even though a canned version…

I decided to use the celery I had cut up in the refrigerator… and make a semi-homemade version myself…

I removed all of the “strings” from the celery and cut up in small pieces… probably about two cups…

I chopped up 1/2 – sweet onion…

sauted in butter in my slow cooker… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

added 1 can of Chicken Broth I had in my pantry… 61b5FGsnGJL._SL1050_

and then let it cook about 1 hour… (I took a nap)…

When I got up…

Added two cans of Cream of Celery Soup… and 1/2 can of milk… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let simmer for an hour… added salt/pepper to taste… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  I like my Black Pepper!

It was delicious!…

*********************************

I had a sweet potato left from Thanksgiving dinner…

so I stuck 3 toothpicks around the sides (middle) … and placed in a glass of water… root side down…

The toothpicks keep the potato upright in glass and only wets 1/2 of the potato…

This allows roots to begin to form

You will see shoots of a stem and leaves begin to grow and it is ready to plant in about 1 month…
