I love to cook, but leftovers can be the bane of my existence. Anytime I can find a way to use leftovers in a way that is completely different from their original meal, I am excited.
It doesn’t always happen, but when it does mmmm, mmmm, mmm!
It was had a fabulous year at our farmer’s market and add to that the abundance that was our garden this year and that makes lots of good food!
Sadly, Saturday was the last day our favorite farmer will be at the market and we will miss him but look forward to June when he will be back at the market again! However, over the past weeks, I have been stocking up on winter squash, pumpkins, onions, and garlic. We were gifted a huge bag of apples, which will be cooked this week. However, the big winner was the 50 lbs. of potatoes that we got for practically nothing.
Yes, you read that right – 50 pounds – which is A LOT of potatoes…
When life gives you potatoes, the only thing to do is to make some hearty potato soup!
Women derive a pleasure, incomprehensible to the other sex, from the delicate toil of the needle. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter
It has been a few weeks since I have checked in here, but trust me I have been busy. Ever since discovering the wonder that is 100 Acts of Sewing, I have been busy stitching up an assortment of Dress No. 2 frocks and one Dress No. 3 are completed. I am seriously in love with them, so much so I now have three tunic-style frocks from the Dress No 2 pattern, one lovely linen dress with some divine linen I got here. IN ADDITION, I have a lovely linen/cotton blend Dress No. 3. The madness has not yet stopped and I have some more ideas percolating in my brain for future projects.
A few days ago, I posted this photo on Instagram and several people asked me for the recipe!
Smart people, because it is such a good soup – and it is so easy!!
