My Contribution This Day

Today, I made Potato Leek soup. Two leeks, a large onion, chopped and sautéed in a splash of olive oil and a pat of butter until the aroma filled the room.



I added to the onions and leeks: one chopped carrot, a stalk of celery (also chopped), five diced potatoes and seven cups of vegetable broth and a teaspoon of salt, then brought the mixture to a boil and then let it simmer for 45 minutes. I think the simmering (patience) was the most important step. Just before serving, I added a teaspoon of ground black pepper and some fresh basil.



I served it with some crusty French bread and some Martinelli’s sparkling cider.



This is my contribution to Peace today: homemade potato leek soup. Delicious.

    A piece of my prayer this morning touched the same place in me that your last two enries have:

    May our hearts heed well
    the Divine Word written on every heart,
    that integrity and justice may
    dwell within us.

    Gratitude and inner peace will abide in
    every tranquil soul,
    blessing the universe
    that loving cares for us.
