I had a really great day yesterday. Very busy though, I’m thinking that I only was home about four hours out of the entire day. It wasn’t long at all. The early part of the day was shopping. Hubby and I are invited to a First Birthday party tomorrow, so I was in charge of finding a gift for the little one and as I was out I figured I might as well pick up some healthy groceries as we have a freezer full of meat, and our cabinets are pretty well stocked up on things like rice and pasta…the fridge however, was in a very sorry state. So before I checked out at Walmart I hit up the produce section and picked up some clementines and stuff to make a nice healthy salad. I noticed that they had leeks and they caught my attention as I’ve been really wanted to try some new stuff in the New Year.
Then my phone dinged with a weather advisory for snow coming our way. Before I put my phone away, I pulled up my All Recipe app on my phone and searched for a recipe for potato and leek soup to see if it was feasible for someone with a limited kitchen knowledge to make. I clicked on the first recipe that came up and after reading the ingredients and steps decided that it was totally doable.
So I picked up the few items that I needed and headed home.
I started cooking right away so that it would be just about ready for when Hubby came home from work. As I was adding the last ingredient though, Hubby called to ask if I wanted to join him and his buddy for a meal out to celebrate his friend’s job promotion. Um, that part was not planned, but somehow I convinced them to come here for dinner. I threw together the salad and let the soup simmer. I hardly ever cook anymore, and have never really cooked for anyone other then my Hubby and at work but it came out perfectly. Hubby ate two bowls in fact.
I just wish I had thought to take a picture.
