Today is a good day for soup here in the Midwest. The temps will be falling below zero before the end of the day with wind chills 15° to 25° below zero. The wind is howling outside my office window and the snow is blowing sideways. I guess I shouldn’t complain, our winter has been relatively mild compared to the New England states. They are bracing for their fourth blizzard in a row.
I’ve had a bag russet potatoes that were begging to be made into soup. I love soup especially on a cold blustery day. I picked up a bunch of leeks earlier in the week, so a potato leek soup was my soup of choice this weekend.
