Does It Taste Better...
if you take a picture?
I love food, and usually I love to make food, but the past few weeks I have been in sort of a food slump. I have been lacking inspiration in the kitchen, and supplies have gotten low in the larder because I've been avoiding the grocery store. It has happened before and it will happen again - I joke with my friends that at times like these I feel that I have offended the kitchen god and he has turned his back on me. Not really of course, it is just a fanciful story that humors me until the slump passes.
So last Friday when George and the kids were gone for a few hours, and I was unmotivated to do anything I was supposed to do, I satisfied a craving and made one of my favorite soups.
Potato leek soup to be exact.
My favorite part of making the soup is sauteing the leeks in olive oil until they begin to caramelize then adding a splash of soy sauce and stirring until the leeks are a beautiful shade of brown. Even better is eating the few leeks that don't quite make it to the soup.
There is nothing like making a recipe you love to rekindle your love for cooking, your love for eating, your love for food, and taking a picture helps the taste linger a little longer.
