Country Style Creamy Potato Leek Soup

My husband loves to make soup and is very good at it. This is one of my favourite of his soup recipes.

8 cups water
6 potatoes, diced
1 carrot, diced
2 cups leeks, thinly sliced
4 slices GF bacon, chopped
1 1/2 cup half and half cream
1 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Cheddar Cheese, shredded, for topping, optional
Cooked GF bacon, crumbled, for toping, optional

Place potatoes, carrots, leeks and bacon in a large, heavy bottom pot.
Add water and bring contents to a boil.
Add remaining ingredients.
Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
Add cream; return to stove-top and heat through, do not boil.
Puree soup with an emersion blender until smooth and creamy.
Pour into serving vessels and top with cheese or bacon or both, if using.
