Two Letters and a Kale Potato Soup

Dear Wong Vivant,

I read your blog often. Your positive attitude and absolutely beautiful pictures make me feel inadequate. But it also makes me happy, because I know you in real life and think you're very cool. Anyway, this post goes out to you.

Dear Readers,

If you're unfamiliar with you need to check it out. It's amazing. Her May 4th post of a Kale Potato Soup that she cooked made my mouth water and I ran out to make it. For a better read and much more beautiful pictures (I'm going to start working on this, seriously), you should read her blog... just please don't stop reading mine, too.

Kale Potato Soup

3 Red Potatos cut into Petite Chunks
1 Small Onion Chopped Up
1 Bunch Leeks (I youtubed how to use them... just like Wong Vivant... dammit!)
32 oz. Vegetable Stock
"Lots of Kale" Seriously Wong Vivant, I think I used about 80 times as much Kale as you did. Your words are very misleading and your soup looks better than mine. Also, why do you have so much more broth?

Roast Potato and Onion in oven at 350 for 30 minutes or so until brown and charred to glass pan thus requiring excessive force to clean. Saute Leeks in butter. This makes them taste like bacon. It's awesome. Bring Vegetable Stock to a boil and add Potatoes, Onion, and Leeks. When Potatoes are soft, break them like my circle quiz broke my students' will to learn (my bad, not! seriously kids, have you ever heard of a little thing called studying?). Chop Kale into smallish slivers and add to soup. Let wilt and then enjoy. I actually had two carnivorous friends and loyal readers over to enjoy dinner and some beers with me. They went back for seconds. Nice!
