Leek & Potatoe (sic) Soup

My father always misspelled potato placing the “e” on the end. Many of you will remember a vice president that did the same – much to his embarrassment and dismay. While his spelling was not on the mark his soul always was.

2 to 3 large potatoes cubed
1 and 1/2 pound of leek
1 onion
2 stalks of celery
1 tbs. butter
2 quarts chicken broth
2 cups half and half
salt and pepper
Chopped chives for garnish

Chop the leeks, onion, and celery and saute in the butter until soft. Add stock and potatoes and cook until potatoes are done.
Remove from heat and let cool. Put ingredients in a blender and puree on rough for a short time. Retun to pot, add half and half then reheat — do not boil.
Season to taste.
Add chives to garnish.
