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!
