Celery and Stilton Soup

Looking through the fridge I noticed we had a lot of Celery left. I mean lots, four heads of Celery in fact! And while sifting through the cheese draw I found there was some still some Stilton cheese, with no port left there was only one thing to do. Go and get more port!

No, seriously, I thought that’s too easy lets make some soup for work. So, with a few more ingredients from the fridge I set about making a Celery and Stilton soup. All of this under the watchful gaze of the my other half. “Why are you making soup at 8:30pm in the evening while EastEnders is on” she said. “I wonder” was my whispered answer……
