Broccoli Cheese Soup

This recipe is from my neighbor Elaine. Perfect for cold evenings it is definitely not a healthy soup but one everyone likes (except for Allison, no surprise there).

Broccoli Cheese Soup - Makes 6 servings

1 c chopped onion
1 c finely diced celery
1 bunch broccoli, cut into pieces (about 3 cups)
1/2 c flour
1 pint half and half
1 pint milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
8 oz cheese whiz
3/4 c butter

Barely cover vegetables with water and bring to boil. Simmer 20 minutes or until tender. In another large pan, melt butter and stir in flour. Boil one minute stirring constantly. Stir in milk, half and half and cook until smooth. Bring to a boil and stir well. Add undrained vegetables and cheese whiz. Stir until blended but do not let it come to a boil again.
