Welcome Fall

Posted on Updated on

Everywhere you go, everything screams FALL IS HERE!  I didn’t think I’d be excited as I loved all Summer-ry foods.  But as soon as the first wind of fall came in, I was taken over by the cold spiced air.

Fall reminds me of light jackets, pumpkins, soups, and comfort food.  I’m not a fan of eating soups, because it’s kind of like grown-up baby food.  But I always want to make them for some reason.  I had read some good reviews on Julia Child’s Potato and Leek Soup and decided to give it a try.  It was superbly simple.  Chop, dump, and wait. 

Potato and Leek Soup (by Julia Child)

3-4 cups diced potatoes

3 cups thinly sliced leeks

2 quarts water

1 tbs salt

6 tbs heavy cream or 3 tbs butter

3 tbs minced chives or parsley

After chopping all your vegetables, add it to the water and salt in a 4 qt pot and simmer for 40-50 min partially cover.  Take off heat. You can mash the veges with a fork or run it through a food mill or hand blender.  Adjust salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in cream or butter and top with chives or parsley. And Serve!  Makes about 6-8 servings.

    I’ve been reading up about soups and sauces in my commercial book today, and remembered the potato and leek soup. I had no idea there were so many technicalities behind soups…subhanAllah.
