Potato Leek Soup with Dill

Potato Leek Soup with Dill is a great cold weather dish.  The potatoes make it hearty, while the leeks and dill help to add some refreshing flavors.  Soups are great leftover dishes, as the flavor improves the next day, and they freeze really well.  So, make a double batch, and freeze a few servings for a quick lunch later in the month.

Broccoli Leek and Thyme Soup
