Sue's Potato Soup

My Rating: really liked it.
                                              Sue's Potato Soup
A co-worker brought a pot of this soup, for everyone's lunch, several years ago. It is the best potato soup I have ever had!

1lb. bacon-chopped
1cup diced celery
1cup grated carrots
1cup diced onion
6cups water
8cupd diced potatoes- peeled, or un-peeled
1/2tsp. salt
1/4tsp. pepper
1Tbl. parsley
1 can evaporated milk
1cup cubed processed cheddar-like Velveeta, but I prefer generic

In a 4quart pot, fry the bacon until, almost crispy.
Add the onion, celery and carrot, and cook, stirring until the onion has softened a little.
Add the water, potatoes, salt, pepper, and parsley.
Bring to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are almost soft.
Add the milk and cheese, continue to cook, until the potatoes are fork tender.
Turn the burner off, and allow it to cool a bit, before serving. It's great with crackers.
