has always been one
of my favorite blogs.
They have great recipes
and I usually have most
of the ingredients 
in my cupboard.

 About a week ago,
one of the post was for
I had all of the ingredients
except for the leek and 
the fresh parsley.
while shopping,
I remembered to get the leek,
but forgot the fresh parsley.
I made the soup anyway.
 I needed it to be 
gluten free,
 so I substituted
 1 1/2 teaspoons of cornstarch
for the flour.
Since I forgot the fresh parsley,
I substituted 
1 tablespoon of dried parsley
for the fresh.

The blog recommended
serving crusty bread with it,
which I think would be wondeful,
but it's not gluten free.
I had olive tortilla chips with it
and they were a fabulous
accompaniment to it.

It all went well,
with a nice glass of
my favorite riesling.

Blessings to all who visit here,


  1. Soup is the best meal for this time of year and this one certainly looks like a winner, Lynn!

  2. Lynn, what a perfect meal for an evening that has that fall chill in the air! (I was wishing I had soup for lunch today!)

  3. I'm gluten intolerant so this recipe is what I needed for those long cold nights! Thank you for sharing!
