A simple chicken soup warms your soul. Hmmm..what if we load up the "simple" soup with leeks, onions and even a handful of orzo? What will that do to our souls? Heat it up real hot perhaps?
We are trying to create a new tradition this winter- a different kind of soup every weekend! I'm not sure how long that would last but I'm enjoying learning about all kinds of soups we can have. Hot simmering soup for winter- with a good dvd some candles perhaps...it could almost passed off as our new candle light dinner...
Chicken and Leek Corn Soup
