Potato-Carrot-Leek Soup

PotatoCarrotLeekThis was my first attempt, after I decided to really give cooking a try. Sadly, the recipe has been lost to time. I think I made it fairly accurately, but it was a bit bland. And I learned something very important about cooking for Laura – which is that she really likes texture. The recipe called for this being turned into a puree, which I did much to Laura’s sadness. To get some texture back in we ran downstairs and got a roll of potato bread. I think the overall result was still a little unexciting, but we got it into an ok spot.


Cooking: Begin the Food

I’ve never been super into cooking or…well, food. I eat a lot of super-delicious Red Baron single serving pizzas, which I always burn slightly. But I’d like to get better about both halves of that, for lots of reasons. So a few months back I started trying to cook somewhat regularly. A lot of what I cook isn’t really for me – it’s mostly for Laura. Which means it is more veggie-oriented than I usually prefer. So yea, lots of exciting challenges await. I’ve been doing this for a while so I’m going to post a bunch of blogs up front to get caught up and then try to stay caught up from there.
