Potato leek soup.

sautee 2 leeks and 1 spring onion, added 4 peeled, chunked potatoes and 3 cups water.
Cook and puree. Add 2 cups whole milk and 4 ounces cheese (I used gruyere and cheddar)

ounces, it was a UK recipe originally; I am realizing the orig. recipe has no wine in it, that must have been my own addition! Replace a couple tbsp. ...stock with white wine)

1 oz. butter, 2 leeks sliced finely, 1/2 oz. flour, 150 ml chick. or veg stock, 150ml heavy cream, 4 oz. sliced mushrooms, 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme (or 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves), 2 oz. grated cheddar; 2 lg. chicken breasts
