Time for new pans

Last night I stocked up the freezer with leek and potato soup made from my granny's home grown leeks. The fresh, crisp leeks tasted delicious raw. I felt sad cooking them but I knew I'd get better use out of them in soup. When I use store-bought leeks, the soup ends up a pale creamy colour with a slight green hue, but yesterday the soup was a vibrant pea green! I was quite worried my husband wouldn't eat it as it looked so unusual. It just goes to show that home grown vegetables have concentrated goodness in them.

One day, if/when I have a bigger kitchen, I'd love a whole collection of nice pots and pans. I think it would make cooking much more fun.

i love my vintage pyrex; it does make cooking more fun!

yum, the leek soup sounds good - i love soup!

i can't wait until i have my own vegetable and herb garden; homegrown stuff really does taste better and you don't lose the nutrients since you can take it from garden to table with a short period of time!
