Comfort Food

Today I made one of my all-time favorite fall/winter comfort foods. Potato Soup! It's super easy: one five lb bag of russet potatoes (peeled and chopped rather small), crap tons of salt, some dill, a small container of sour cream and a splash or two of milk. I start by covering the potato bits in water and cooking them down for about six hours. Every time I go into stir I will add another dash of sea salt. Potatoes can suck up the salt, let me tell you! Then, towards the end, I'll add the sour cream, milk and dill.

Served with cheese and french bread it is the ultimate comfort food indulgence. Of course, I like to also serve mine with wine and a good mystery! I happened to find a collection of Agatha Christie's "Marple" at the library and can hardly wait to snuggle into the couch with my big bowl of soup to watch.

So, this has been my big holiday. What about you? How do you celebrate? I hope it's delicious!



I'm starved and love potato soup. My comfort food is chicken and noodles. MMM....I think either one of those meals are getting cooked this week.

HA. I spent the whole day cursing the holiday...I had to work but all the banks were closed, the post office...frustrating.

I am glad to see someone had the day off and enjoyed it, especially with food. :D
