    I made this today. It is traditionally a cold weather meal, but...it'll make ya wanna crank up the AC in the summer just to have it!

    5-6 cups of water
    5-6 potatoes chopped into bite size pieces
    3-4 stalks of celery, chopped
    small onion, chopped
    small bag baby carrots, sliced
    1 tsp dill weed
    1 smoked sausage rope, chopped into bite size pieces
    1 to 1-1/2 c. milk
    1 c. instant potato flakes
    1 small can of sliced mushrooms or one small pkg fresh mushrooms, sliced
    1-1/2 c. Velveeta cheese, cut in about 1/2 inch pieces.

    Combine first 7 ingredients, simmer 'til veggies are almost done.
    Add milk and mushrooms.
    Add, a little at a time, potato flakes 'til desired thickness, stir well between each addition. (This soup continues to thicken when done).
    Add cheese chunks, stir 'til dissolved. Enjoy!

    Serve with croutons, dry Chinese noodles or crackers. Or...garlic or cheese bread/sticks.
