Potato and Leek Soup

Monday, January 27, 2014

I decided to give the crockpot a second chance! Yesterday I woke up and thought it was the perfect day to use the slow cooker so I went to the store and picked up a few things for my potato and leek soup. Five hours later I got this masterpiece. It's delicious! It's been several years since I've put sour cream in my soup and this was nostalgia with borscht. I also made homemade "bacon" bits by frying veggie bacon to crispy and chopping it up. I've never actually eaten a leek before. I was like... dafuq is this.. how to do I cook it.. which parts are edible.. uh.. I can't even tell leek is in this because it molded with the cabbage over those hours.

This weekend was good and relaxing besides the weigh in appointment. I bought a new game on the snow day Friday and pretty much did that all weekend. I've developed a callus on my right wrist from using the mouse so much. PC gaming... sigh. I suffer because the game quality is worth it. There's a 90% chance I won't have work tomorrow or Wednesday because they are predicting 3 inches of snow for Louisiana! I am so excited to make a snowman, you have no idea. Last time I saw snow was 2008.

Goals for this week:
emoticon No drinking
emoticon Eating homemade whole food meals
emoticon Writing down everything I eat and times
emoticon Exercise at least 30 minutes
emoticon Make a snowman?

    The crock pot is a bit of an anomaly to me as well. I mean, I know soups and roast go good in it...but what else? My mom is better with than I am...but I should get more into using it, especially with my busy working schedule.

I love sour cream....probably a bit to much. Thank goodness I am low carb and high fat.

I like your goals...and demand pictures if you get to make a snowman. We had some ice in Austin...but it was pretty much frozen snowman for us!

Have a good next few days!

    Oh I love leeks in soup, they taste sooo good. Your soup looks delicious & veggie bacon adds great little bits of flavor. Glad you're having fun with the crockpot :)

    The soup looks delicious! I like how you laid out your goals, and snow in Louisiana is just hard to fathom! I hope everyone stays safe... near Chicago we're prepared for snow, but I would think Louisiana wouldn't be quite so ready, since there's usually so little need. Have fun, and take a picture of your snowman! emoticon

    Love your goals with their matching emoticons! :-) I haven't used my crock-pot in ages, i really should find some new recipes to try out! Glad you had a good weekend & are looking forward to the snow! Personally I'd be fine with not seeing another flake, but I live in Maine, so it's a part of life up to 6 months of the year for me!

    3 inches of snow in Louisiana? That's just crazy. I am up in Ohio, so that's nothing up here, but that's absolutely insane for down there. Good luck if it happens!!!
