Potato Leek and Swiss Chard Soup

My boyfriend loves to cook, but I think the only things he made the entire summer were cold sandwiches and salads. Not that I'm complaining. He makes a mean hoagie, let me tell you. But, now that it's finally cooling off again, it's nice to see him really cooking again; his best meals usually center around an amazing pasta sauce, soup or his world famous chili.

I don't know what he did, but armed with the beautiful local potatoes, leeks and Swiss chard that we picked up from the Headhouse Market yesterday, he made the best soup ever.

Other local produce was used in this salad, which included baby salad greens, pears, onions, walnuts, sprouts, and a yellow heirloom tomato. Oh! And a delicious multigrain baguette from Versailles Baking Co. (who do not have a website that I can find...)

I love you, Phil. Especially when you cook. :)

I also love it when my boyfriend cooks. He cooks great, but not often enough ;-)
But I was the one who made the potato leek soup yesterday over here! I'm sure swiss chard would have been a nice addition.
Thanks again for your support in these stupid bad moments. It means a lot!

I want-- no NEED-- a boyfriend who likes to cook. My last boyfriend's idea of a gourmet meal was Subway :o/

I completely agree with you about the soy yogurts... why do they have so much sugar? It's gross-- Even the "plain" versions. *Sigh*
