Potato Artichoke Soup

I should have thought to take some process photos
of this soup. Often, I'm just happily cooking
away, then we sit down to eat and I do a Homer Simpson.
"Doh, (slapping myself on the forehead), this would be a great blog post."

This is really tasty.
So, hopefully you will forgive me.
And make do this time
with a photo and a recipe.

Potato Artichoke Soup

4 stalks celery (with leaves if possible), sliced
