Curry Leek Soup and Knitted Lovelies

I tried a new recipe the other day, and both Jeremie and I loved it!
It was amazingly easy and deliciously healthy.

Curry Leek Soup



 3 Medium Leeks, white portion only, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 T. Butter
1 (14.5 ounce) can Chicken broth
3/4 c. Water
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced Carrots
2 Celery ribs, thinly sliced
2 t. chicken bouillon granules
1/2 t. Curry powder
1/8 t. Pepper
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk.

In a 3-qt. saucepan, saute leeks and garlic in butter over medium heat until tender.
Add the broth, water, carrots, celery, bouillon, curry powder and pepper.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until veg is tender.
Cool slightly.
Place 1 cup soup in a blender or food processor; cover and process until smooth.
Return to pan.
Add milk; heat through.
Do not boil.

Here is Mum with Eloise, and her new cardigan and bonnet she knit for her.
It's so soft and warm, and looks just adorable on Eloise.
Perfect for those cold Fall days!


Look at those cheeks!!



I love the back of the bonnet almost as much as I do the front!
Thank you so much Mum.


Peace,
