What are you up to this weekend? So many nice options! If you live around here, your best bet is the 3rd annual Dallas Art Fair which runs through Sunday. After the Fair, you might as well keep your art buzz going! Have you seen the 2008 documentary, Herb & Dorothy? It's the story of a New York postal worker and his librarian wife who compiled a world class modern art collection. It's inspiring!

Enjoy your weekend!

Asparagus Mushroom Potato Soup - Peachtree Family Cookbook

1 leek, sliced
3 c mushrooms, sliced
3 T butter
3 garlic cloves
6 c red potatoes, quartered, unpeeled
10 c chicken broth
1 t freshly ground pepper
1 lb asparagus, sliced into 1 1/2" lengths
salt to tast

In a stock pot, saute the leeks and mushrooms in the butter and garlic until tender.
Add the potatoes, broth and pepper and cook until the potatoes are soft. The asparagus should be added last and cooked only until crisp tender, about 5-7 minutes. Salt to taste. Garnish with sour cream or creme fraiche. Plain greek yogurt would work too.
