Cheddar Ham Chowder

Good Golly, Miss Molly, this is DELICIOUS! My friend Sally has a food blog that I love stealing recipes from. There are usually pretty straight forward and ALWAYS right up my food loving alley. This recipe though, this recipe blew my socks away I was so surprised at how much I loved it.

2 1/2 cups water
2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup butter
1/4 flour
2 cups milk
2 cups cheddar cheese
16 oz frozen corn
1 1/2 cups cubed ham

Bring water, potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, salt and pepper to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until veggies are tender. Set aside; do not drain. In second pan, melt butter; blend in flour. Add milk; cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Add cheese and stir until melted. Put cheesy mixture in with veggies and broth; add corn and ham. Heat thoroughly, stirring occasionally.
Tastes even better the second day!
