It was cloudy and hazy today but the gift of friendship brought the sunshine into our day. We had so much fun sharing food and fellowship and enjoying the blessing of being with friends. I am truly blessed.
A new blog today! This is a big step but I am looking forward to sharing things from my heart and my kitchen with my friends and family.
We are going to continue to homeschool through the summer. Giving us a more relaxed opportunity to keep working on skills but also have fun learning new things. We are looking forward to a study of The Mississippi, maybe a little latin and of course History. The children will each have a new devotional to read through the summer, hopefully to begin touching those areas that will encourage them to grow and expand in God's Word.
Today I made Potato Leek Soup for lunch! Yumm!
Here is the recipe:
1 stick of butter
2 leeks ( washed and cut up)
5 lb. bag of potatoes( peeled and diced)
Melt the butter in a large soup pot. Add the leeks to the melted butter and cook until they are well done. I acutally cut up my potatoes while they are cooking. Add potatoes and enough water to cover them. Cook until done. I use my hand blender to blend the soup and make it into a wonderful creamy soup. If you don't have one, fill your blender full of the cooked potatoes and water... blend and then put back into the soup. I had quite a bit of salt to the soup, but since I am don't really "measure" anything I would suggest you add the salt to your taste. :)
