Karen's Ham chowder

This is true comfort food and a long time family recipe!  It is so delicious!! A HUGE thank you to my Aunt Karen for letting me pick her brain on the amounts of each ingredient.  It originated from her mother-in-law and there were no amounts listed.  With my Aunts help it turned out perfect and oh so delicious!! 
Karen's Ham Chowder
3-4 medium potatoes
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced onions
2 cups diced ham (small pieces)
3 cups milk
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Place a small amount of olive oil in a pan.  On medium heat cook the onions for a couple of minutes and then add the ham.  Cook until onion is clear and soft and ham is warmed through (just a little bit brown). Place potatoes, carrots and celery in a pot;barely cover them with water.  Cook until just tender (becareful not to over cook).  When veggies are tender add cream of mushroom soup and milk.  Stir until combined.  Add the ham, onion and cheddar cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted.  Season with salt and pepper.   Serve with crackers or french bread.
