I decided to step away from the Thanksgiving food for a day and share another one of my fall favorites. This past week it has gotten really cold here. I mean down right blustery. Wind gusts, leaves blowing in the air, rain hitting the window panes. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I love days like this. I love days like this because I can wrap up in a blanket, sit next to a fire and read a book. And in between page turns I can reach for a bowl of hot soup to warm me up. That is where this potato leek soup comes in. It’s smooth and creamy. Rich and hearty. It is the perfect way to warm you up on a cold autumn day.
In addition to warming me up on a cold fall day, I like this soup because it is pretty darn easy to make. To get it smooth and creamy I did use an immersion blender because I don’t have a regular blender. Immersion blenders are great little tools. They easy to clean up and you don’t have to transfer the hot soup to a blender. I’d recommend adding one to your Christmas list. Mine is red, it is pretty. I heart it.

Diana- This works! I answer all questions I get on here as well as those that are emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org :) I am surprised that I haven’t made a chicken tortilla soup since it is one of my favorites. I think I will have to tackle that in the next couple of weeks. I will be sure to keep you posted.
