Potato/Corn/Tomato Soup

These amounts are approximate...adjust according to your tastes...

Saute in olive oil in a big pot:
-2 celery stalks, minced
-1 large onion, minced
-3 large carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. salt
-1/2 tsp. pepper

When all is soft but not browned, add:
-3 russet potatoes, scrubbed and chopped
-1 large can tomato sauce, or 1 large can chopped tomatoes, or 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
-about 1/2 bag frozen corn, thawed
-1 bay leaf
-1 tsp. dried oregano
-1 tsp. dried basil
-4-6 cups of liquid (depending on if you want this to be more like a stew or soup - I use half broth and half water.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for at least 45 minutes
