Soup Day

This morning  when I opened the front door a wave of fresh, cold, and woody air entered my home. 
I closed my eyes for a moment and took a deep breath. 
And another... And one more...  
The air smelled of a fallen leaves blended with intoxicating aroma of cedar trees with a touch of the morning frost... It was a perfect start of the day.

By lunch time I was definitely in a fall mode and made myself a quick creamy potato-leek-squash soup.
I had 1 cup of Russet potatoes, cubed, 1/2 cup of butternut squash, cubed, 1/2 cup of sliced leek. 

I started with adding leek to a teaspoon of hot oil, gave it a quick stir and added squash. Another quick stir. Then potatoes and 2 cups of water (or vegetable stock) went in the same pot. I simmered it for 15 minutes (until potatoes and squash were done), then transferred all to a blender with 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. 

Served with micro greens

 As I indulge myself with a spoon of warm soup I paused for a few seconds to enjoy the moment...

Until next time,
