Happy St. David’s Day

March 1, 2023

St. David is recognized as the Patron Saint of Wales – the protector and symbol of that country. He was a well known priest and teacher during the 6th century and is a symbol of the culture of the Welsh people throughout history – first standing up to the Norman invaders and later to the diminishing of the Welsh language and culture in more modern times.

I, personally, like leeks – although I have no desire to eat a raw one, but I did make Potato-Leek Soup this weekend. It is one of my favorite soup recipes and is good for lunch, dinner, breakfast, snacks, hot, cold, lukewarm, etc.

The recipe:

4 leeks chopped mostly the white part

1 medium chopped

sautéed leeks and onion in 3 Tbs. of butter until soft

peel and chop 4-5 russet potatoes

add them to the leek and onion mixture

add 6-7 cups of chicken broth

add 1/4-1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

cover and cook 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are soft

Let the mixture cool for a bit, then buzz in a blender

Add fresh or dried dill – I used dried – about 1 1/2 tsp.

You can add 1 cup of half and half or cream before serving, but I don’t think it needs it.

It looks something like this. I cannot show you mine because I had it for lunch.
