I Woke Up to a Wonderful Aroma This Morning...,

I did a major food shop the other day.
Among other things was a bag of potatoes.
When I got home, I realized that I still had a fair number already in stock - and that they really should be used.
That in turn led to an idea, the net, and then about an hour of prep time starting a batch of potato leek soup in a slow cooker overnight.

I actually like potato based soups, but this was the first time that I'd ever attempted one myself - and from scratch.
As is my normal way of doing things, the recipe was a starting point and I modified at whim adding whatever was on hand that also seemed appropriate.
It's on low heat, but I've taste tested it, and it definitely worked the way I'd hoped.
In turn that means that tonight I will not be deciding, "I'm hungry," and doing a five minute quick fix from freezer, to microwave, to plate - aka "Bachelor's Survival."
