I have made this recipe every Lent for the past twenty years and have never been disappointed.
I got it from one of my neighbors in Brunswick, Maine when we were stationed there in the late 80's. Hence why it's called "NWC" for "Navy Wives Club". It is very simple to make and really hits the spot on a cold damp day.

6 potatoes - peeled and chopped
2 onions - chopped
3-4 carrots - peeled and chopped

Saute carrots, onion and celery in butter or olive oil until onions are softened. Add potatoes. Cover with water.
For each cup you add, use one chicken bullion cube (or if you want a complete veggie meal, use vegetable bullion).
Cook to boil - 10 minutes
Mix 1/2 cup flour and 1 14oz can of evaporated milk. Pour slowly into pot, stirring constantly.
Cook on low 15-20 minutes.
