more soup!

It’s been chilly here and I’ve been taking full advantage by making all of our favorite soups. I think I’ve finally perfected the ol’ potato leek. It makes quite a lot which is nice for dinner the day it’s made and lunches on following days.


8 cups chicken stock
6 potatoes, peeled and cut into large pieces
4 leeks (whites only), thoroughly washed and sliced
3 stalks celery, roughly chopped
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup heavy cream

Combine chicken stock, potatoes, leeks, celery, bay leaf and thyme in a large pot and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Boil until the potatoes are soft.
Take out the bay leaf.
Blend the soup until smooth.
*****Make sure you let the soup cool down before blending and blend in very small batches. otherwise you, your dog, and kitchen will end up wearing it*****
Pour the soup into a medium pot.
Add the cream and simmer until the soup has thickened
Sprinkle a little paprika on top and enjoy!
