So, this was Thursday...

I opened the curtains to this:






 

So, I decided to do this:



Leek, Broccoli & Potato Soup
(from scratch - with bacon)

Have a good day all ;)

Love the hoar frost and your response to it looked very tasty.
We had a soup day yesterday, too, also with leeks.

Good plan!
No hoar frost here, but I did make a huge pot of taco soup. :)
Today it is sleeting. There are cars spinning out on the highway and by the time I got home, our road was quite slick.

PS: my word verification is "untent." Is that the opposite of intent? or what you do when you finish camping? ;)

Great photos of the frost, but the soup pictures is terrific! That looks SO good, I might have to go to town and get some leek and broccoli so I can make some (I have leftover ham from last night - that would be tasty, wouldn't it?)

Beautiful shots of shitty weather Reb! I like the way you think; just 3 days ago I bought potato and leek soup and added a minced hamburguesa to it. Yummy!

Reb said...

Thanks Leah, it was very good... today will be even better :)

Kcinnova, weather like that deserves soup...any kind. (I'd go with the camping)

Thanks Sis, ham would be tasty.

Thanks Scott. Yes, it makes a meal in itself that way.

Frost is so lovely to look at -- in pictures from far away, in the sunshine. When I see it in person, I'm usually too cold to appreciate it.

Your cooking sounds like mine -- most recipes, especially for soup, start with grabbing my grandmother's cast iron pots or skillets and melting some bacon grease.

Reb said...

Messymimi, yes, that was taken from inside the apartment ;)

I've got two pots of soup in the refrigerator right now--split pea, and venison vegetable--but you can keep the frost. It's actually going to be above freezing all week here.

Mary Ann, it has been so unusually humid here the frost hasn't gone yet from the trees.

Hilary said...

Looks yummy! A good idea on such a day.

Reb said...

Hilary, it was great.

Dianne said...

beautiful, beautiful photos!!
and the soup looks so good, and so comforting

Reb said...

Thanks Dianne, it was just what I needed.

Great post! Three pictures worth way more than 3,000 words. And I want some of that soup, it looks heavenly.

Reb said...

Thanks Crabby! Soups all gone now though :(

Frank Baron said...

Cold here today too. I made some comfort food as well. It's a dish I've only ever heard of Ukrainian and Polish people enjoying (and probably other Slavic folks). The best phonetic interpretation of it is (in Polish): stew-JEN-itch and (Ukrainian): stew-din-ETZ.

It's a form of what Anglos call "headcheese" and is eaten cold with vinegar, salt and pepper. (An acquired taste, I've been told by those who've tasted it - once.)

Your soup looks yummy. :)

Reb said...

Frank...yeah, I think it would be an acquired taste. Thanks.

Clare2e said...

I know the soup's gone ice cold by now, but just to say, YUM! Sounds delish and looks it, too!

Reb said...

Ben thanks.

Clare, cold - no, gone - yes ;)

Missicat said...

mmm...need recipe! Looking to get snowed in this weekend so that would be a wonderful treat!

fiwa said...

Yummy! That soup looks so good!

Travis Erwin said...

Beautiful. all but the soup that is. I'm a meatitarian.

Reb said...

Fiwa, thanks. It was great!

Travis, it has bacon in it....the broccoli was an experiment to try to get more veggies ;)
