Potateo, Leek Harvest & Soup

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
– Edith Sitwell

It was a delight to dig up some late Winter potatoes and leeks. The American Flag Leeks and Kennebec potatoes added such delicious fresh flavor to this winter soup. I also baked a Rustic Italian Rosemary loaf, this crusty loaf was a delight to dip in the soup.
