House Full of Sickies

So, I took our sweet baby girl to the doctor today, since we were on day 4 of miserable-ness.

Her breathing sounded awful
She has not been sleeping well
She's been WAY cranky (which is so unlike her)
and you can just see it in her eyes.


The doctor thinks she has Bronchiolitis, which he explained as basically a form of baby pneumonia. BOO!

Since it's a viral thing, there is no treatment and we just have to let it run it's course. DOUBLE BOO!

On top of that, my hubby and the boy are also sick. TRIPLE BOO!

Since everyone was feeling poopy and the weather has been ugly and grey...I made some comfort food for dinner.

Potato & Leek Soup.

It was just what the doctor ordered (at least this doctor of the kitchen!)

I followed this recipe and it was gooooood!! Everyone liked it. Sweet Pea practically licked her bowl clean.

UPDATE: Here are a few changes and "chef's notes": I didn't use the bouquet garni as called for in the recipe. To make things simple, I put 3/4 tsp. pepper, 4 springs of thyme (stripped from the stem) and bay leaves directly into the soup. Remove the bay leaves prior to blending.

To lighten it up, you can substitute 2% or 1% milk for the heavy cream.

You should try it. You won't be disappointed.

Of course, loading it up with cheese and bacon is always a plus :)
