Leek and Potato Soup


Hello everyone, it has been snowing outside and I’ve got the cold so Leek and Potato Soup seemed a perfect recipe to share.

I had originally planned to make some homemade bread to go along with it. Unfortunately one of the symptoms of my cold seems to be laziness and I just couldn’t be bothered. The thought of kneading dough for 5 minutes wasn’t appealing today.

When I’m feeling better I’ll make a basic sandwich loaf so I can share the recipe on here. There is nothing better to have with your soup than homemade bread.
