PhotoHunt ~ Custom

The PhotoHunt for today is Custom ~
I have come to enjoy the 'custom' of an aperitivo in the afternoon in Italy

No wonder it is called Happy Hour. . .

Not a custom that I feel the need to ignore . . .

Especially when my Spritz comes with a little cicchetti

Cooking Light ~ Luck 'O the Irish

For our Virtual Supper Club this month we are celebrating the 'Luck 'O the Irish' with an Irish inspired meal.With the weather we have been having . . . I new I was searching for soup. I went to the Cooking Light pages and found THIS Recipe for Potato Soup

Potato Kale Soup with Gruyre Cheese
2 Tbs butter
1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cups chicken broth
4 cups coarsely chopped potatoes
1/4 tsp salt
1 bay leaf
6 cups chopped fresh kale
Gruyre cheese, shredded
Melt butter in a large saucepan, saute onion for 8 minutes until tender and garlic for a few seconds. Stir in broth potatoes, bay leaf  and salt. Simmer until potatoes are tender.
(I don't know if you have one of these secret jars of bacon grease . . . but I do. Just for this kind of recipe. I used a scoop of it instead of butter ~ just for the yum)
Dice the Kale and add to the cooked potatoes. Cook for another 5-10 minutes until the kale is tender. Roughly smash the potatoes until the soup is the consistency you like.
Top with a healthy handful of shredded Gruyere.
My Camera decided to focus on the plate and not on the soup in every.single. picture I took.
So you have a lovely photo of a plate of yummy fuzzy soup.


Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our  Supper celebrating the Luck 'O the Irish.
Jerry has made an Irish Cheddar Bacon Dip
Val is making a Green Onion Champ
Susan is bringing Shamrock Meringue Cups
Sara is making a Wild Mushroom and Lentil Cottage Pie

Y'all enjoy ~
