    Very good hearty and comforting soup! I used half the amount of flour, butter and milk. I added 3 chopped as well carrots and frozen spinach and it tasted great. Thanks for sharing. - 4/17/11

    I made this last night for dinner. Wow it was so easy and so good. I did add two grated carrots and one finely chopped celery stock. Hubby even liked it. (He doesn't do soup.) - 2/11/11
