The "It's About Time You Posted Something, rhymeswithsmile" Cream of Something Soup

Cream of Something Soup - makes about 3 cups (about 3 cans)

6 T. butter
1/2 c. diced onion, chopped celery, chopped cooked chicken, or chopped mushrooms
6 T. flour
2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
3 c. milk

Melt the butter in a saucepan.  Stir in the onion (or celery, or chicken, or mushrooms) and saute for 3-5 minutes or until soft (for the vegetables.  If you added chicken, just stir for a few minutes).  Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper.  Gradally stir in the milk and continue stirring until the white sauce is smooth and thick, and comes to a boil.  Remove from heat.  

Yes.  You can, indeed, make your own cream of mushroom soup.  It's so easy!  Just don't leave out the salt (like I accidentally did on purpose as a challenge to the mister's salt habit ... we ended up adding salt to our final dish, so it was a wash).  

Think of all the possibilities!  Casseroles, meats, and potato soup just got so much more homemade.  Yippee skippee.

And now that I've told you how easy it is to make Cream of Something Soup, you can tell me how easy it is to (ehem) blog more regularly.  I'm trying, I promise.  I've just got other things going on, like this:

I mean, if you had to deal with such preciousness all day, how could YOU find the time to blog with any kind of frequency?
