The leeks are growing. The autumn has been cold so they don't grow fast enough, but I took up a few to make more room for the others to grow, and with two carrots (not from the garden) and alot of herbs and flowers and some cream, it made a perfect soup.
I am really no expert in writing down recipes, I have it all in my head and my fingers only. But I started with cutting the carrots and leek very thin and boil it in salted water. Then I melted butter, mixed it with some flour and added water from the boiling vegetables, and also some cream, salt, pepper and herbs from the garden. It made a wonderful soup.
Marta was away celebration a birthday, and when Ingrid heard I was going to make leek soup she said at once: I'm going to eat with my boyfriend today. They were still here when the soup was finished, I offered them a tasting spoon and got them hooked :-). Luckily I had made enough soup for four.
Forgot to say that I also diced some old bread and fried the dices in olive oil. The bread was served as a sidedish to top the soup before eating. A perfect way to make old and dry bread as good as new.
