Dinner Time!

This morning we made potato leek soup - Julia Child's recipe.
This was my second attempt at the first try, on Tuesday, was WAY TOO SALTY (inedible).  So this time I only put a few shakes of salt in, and it is delicious. On Tuesday I didn't pay enough attention to the recipe, which says to leave the lid ajar (partially covered), and the soup was a bit runny.  Much heartier this time. I may have put less than 8 cups of water in as well, because I lost count while we were dumping it in.

(Julia recommends adding butter or cream with chives before serving...mmmmmm)


  1. Yum! I've actually been wanting to try this recipe.

  2. Potato leek soup is my favourite! Making soup is one of the best things about fall :)

  3. This is one of my favourite soups, only after butternut squash puree and cream of mushroom! :-)

    Hi Shannon,
    This soup is one of our favorites, if not 'the' favorite. I found the recipe on Martha Stewart kids, if I remember correctly. It is super yummy. Here it is if you want to check it out: Have a great weekend.
