Fast Foodie


We had been sitting on a ton of leeks we grew last year that needed using up and had run out of inspiration with what we were going to do with them. Luckily Kirsty at Rural Restorarion did a blog post that mentioned leek and potato soup that was perfect timing for us.

 Since a picture paints a thousands words, lets take a look at what we've been up to










Since Carly is a pretty amazing cook (in fact she's pretty and amazing in general) the soup was delicious. Not one to sit around doing nothing, she somehow managed to whip up some pasties ...






...and a Rhubarb crumble...


...AND a skull shaped red jelly. It didn't quite come out how it should have, but the kids didn't mind that he looked like he'd been in a fight!

  1. This looks delicious! Leek and potato soup is a staple here, it is quick to make and filling.

    1. Our only problem is that it's so delicious that it doesn't last very long around here lol

  3. L and P soup is a winter standby in this maison. It's almost always on the go. I like the idea of an L and P pasty; I must steal your idea. And Rhubarb crumble.... how can anyone survive without it?

    1. I find you can't do many things with rhubarb, but the things you can do are more than worth it. Carly makes a mean Rhubarb and Vanilla jam

  4. Those pasties look great. I need to make some again - soon. Can't be lazy and buy them around here as they don't sell them that much in US.
