5 cups water

2 cups chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup sliced carrots

1/4 cup butter

4 teaspoons chicken bouillon

2 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 can evaporated milk (12oz)

3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (I have made it without this and it turns out fine)

Snipped chives, optional

In a large Slow Cooker, combine the first nine ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 7-8 hours or until the vegetables are tender. Add milk and parsley; mix well. Cover and cook 30-60 minutes or until heated through. Garnish with chives if desired. Yield: 8-10 Servings (about 3 quarts)
