Winter time lends itself to warm and hearty food. Last week, I made some cream of broccoli and cheddar soup and I only wish I had wrote down the recipe so that I could share it with you. Unfortunately, I am really bad for just making things up and hoping for the best!
At the grocery store a few days ago I was on a mission to buy lots of vegetables. I ended up buying leeks and bok choy, which are fairly unfamiliar vegetables to me. I was looking for a recipe for the leeks and most of the recipes I found were for soup. Knowing that the snow is likely here to stay in Calgary for a while and the city would be chilly, I decided to make my own warm and hearty leek soup (and knew if I added bacon that Michael would love it).
Bacon, Leek and Potato Soup
2 tsp. butter
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup goat's milk
1/2 cup organic 1/2 and 1/2 cream
(or 1 cup total of one of the above)
