A Slow Cooker Recipe for you

Hello there everyone! I hope that you have enjoyed your day today. My day was busy with dancing exams. My Miss 10 did well and was calm about the whole thing so the day was really positive. She is glad that the exams are over so now she can enjoy practising for the Christmas concert.

Cooking dinner can be fun but when you have to do it everyday it gets to be a bit of a chore. So with that thought and a new cookbook for the slow cooker I have been cheating in a way and have been cooking meals in the cooker rather than standing over the stove. I'm sure my family won't want me to do it forever but for now cooking a simple wholesome meal is what I am looking for. Tonight I cooked Potato and Leek soup in the slow cooker and I thought I would share the recipe.

Potato and Leek Soup
4 potatoes roughly chopped

2 leaks, white part only, thinly sliced
2 celery stalks, chopped

1 carrot, chopped

2 prosciutto slices, roughly chopped

5ooml chicken or vegetable stock

500ml water pouring cream, to serve

Put the potato, leek, celery, carrot, prosciutto, stock and 500ml of water in the slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours.

Using a hand held stick blender, puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, transfer the soup mixture to a food processor and puree until smooth. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve drizzled with cream.

I hope you enjoy the recipe and don't do what I did and forget the extra liquid of water. I was so tired and rushed that I didn't see it written in the recipe, in my defence it wasn't included in the ingredients!(lol) We liked the soup but it was just a bit thick!

Talk to you soon
