crafting and cooking Sunday

I really like to update my blog on the weekends! It is refreshing for me to craft my little heart out then, post, post, post.
Today in about 2 hours time I completed my very first spinner ring. I used copper and a
sterling silver spin ring. I can say I'm really pleased with the results for a 1st try! I don't plan on listing this one though. Its too much fun to keep the practice model and sell the perfected pieces :)

Now I'm off to make an amazing vegetarian potato leek soup! mmmm simmer, simmer, bubble, bubble... here, enjoy the recipe and take care of some lunches for the week.

6 cups veggie stock
6 leeks (whites only)
1/2 cup onion
4 potatoes diced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup light cream (or whole milk)
chives or parsley to garnish

Combine the 1st 6 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 min. Run through blender. Return to pot. Stir in cream and heat through. Garnish with greens! Makes about 8 cups

This recipe looks delicious. I've been craving potato soup lately, with a sprinkle of grated cheddar. Yum! Thanks for the recipe and your ring is super pretty!
