How does lost in Dallas and Creamy Celery Soup connect????

Have you ever been to Dallas and can't get out.  Well thats what I was afraid was happening today.  We drove and drove, the roads taking us many directions.  Elvira, our Garmin recalculating us a kazillion times due to endless construction.  Magically we popped out onto the interstate that lead us home, but not before the storms hit.  
Time for dinner, and getting back late I decided to clean out the refrig, tumbling upon the ingredients for Creamy Celery Soup.
How many times have you purchased celery just needing a little bit?  I do that often, then letting the unused set in the refrigerator until it goes bad.  Not anymore.  Here is a recipe for celery soup and it is really good.  Even my husband likes it and he can be kind of picky sometimes.  
CREAMY CELERY SOUP, DALLAS, CELERY, POTATO, ONION, BUTTER, CHICKEN STOCK, DILL, CREAM, GARLIC, SALT, PEPPER

Ingredients:
1 pound celery, chopped
1 medium potato, diced
1 small onion, chopped
4 Tablespoons butter
32 ounces chicken stock
4 teaspoons fresh dill
4 Tablespoons cream
1 garlic glove
salt and pepper to taste

In 4 Tablespoon butter, let celery, onion, garlic and potato simmer for about 10 minutes.  Add dill weed and stock.  Stew for 20 minutes.
In a blender, blend the celery, onion, garlic potato, dill weed and stock until smooth, adding a little milk if to thick.  Back in the pot bring to a low boil and add salt and pepper to taste.
Put the cream into the soup bowl, and pour the soup on top.  Swirl round with the spoon before serving.
