Leek & Potato  Soup


Whoa…..would you look at the date?

It’s been over a month since I posted my last recipe…..time sure flies, doesn’t it?

…..right now we are living day to day……trying to keep positive….no big plans…..not a lot traveling…..

Little Peanut is still recovering from the accident over two months ago…..lot of physio….trauma counseling…getting used to our new life in a slower lane….catching up with school work…

Since we are spending lot of time at home there is always something happening in our KITCHEN.

Little Peanut is becoming my #1 sous-chef and you know me…..I AM LOVING IT…..

…..also……I like to look for a silver lining in everything that happens in life and as traumatic as the accident was for our entire family one things came out of it… made as all more GRATEFUL & closer to each other…..

….to break the boredom that comes from no being able to do anything and go anywhere I decided to start little projects around the house we can do together….

Last weekend we started with project “GARDEN SHED” ……since hubby is away the one male I had to rely on was Hormone Boy….yes, I was skeptical…..scared…..concerned…..hiding power tools…..putting together first aid kit….

Luckily, my little sister offered help… now there was 3 of us that never done anything like this EVER…..3 of us that didn’t have a clue what we were doing….

This was our plan:

….STEP 1…..purchase garden shed kit from local hardware store…..bring it home….

….STEP 2….hope for the best…..

I am not going to lie… wasn’t pretty….certain words were flying around….and 5 hours later…..VICTORY….SUCCESS….NEW SHED was build.

Since I knew everyone will be starving after the project was done I managed to sneak away in the middle (they never noticed) and make delicious pot of LEEK & POTATO SPRING SOUP….



Leek & Potato Spring Soup

    Wonderful shed! Love the soup, I used to make this for a long time, and somehow I forgot all about it. Now with winter here, I guess I should do it again, soup at least in my parts of the world is best consumed in the cold winter.

  6. I think the shed turned out great! I don’t know if I’ve ever had a leek, but this soup sounds delicious. It’s been so cold out lately so soups are at the top of my list.

    What a great attitude you have kept through the hardships. I’m sorry about the accident, but glad that some good has come out of it, and that you have a closer relationship! You had me with the soup. Potato leek is one of my favorites.
