mushrooms, 9.9

A pile of baby portobello’s for a cream of mushroom and leek soup I’m making while on mini-holiday today. I really adore mushrooms, they photograph beautifully, and today feels like the perfect day for a comfort soup.

Plus, whilst re-reading the insanely amazing Hunger Games Trilogy (the best y.a. I’ve read in many moons–everyone should read it, young and old), I felt inspired to make something hearty and rooty, since the main character Katniss is always foraging.

Forage on. Snaps of finished delight to come.
