Potato Soup





Last Sunday  was a cold rainy day yet we had quite an adventure.  Despite the fact that our day didn't start right due to the the service disruption at the MRT red line, my husabnd Frederick and I still had a great time. We watched Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol on imax, had an enjoyable lunch at Jack's place, had an informative time at the Serangoon Public Library, and Frederick prepared a splendid supper for us. I couldn't ask for anything more for being blessed with a wonderful and gorgeous husband who is super duper caring, loving, optimistic, a good cook, and who cooks for his wife.  Lucky me :-) Thank you Dear mmmuah.





It was my husband's turn to cook for supper last Sunday :-) He volunteered as he wanted to impressed me with his potato soup he got the idea after we had lunch at Jack's Place. So come supper time, he served me this sumptuos meal featuring his potato soup.  He said that I was his inspiration for this meal coz he wants to serve the best for me :-) Sweet isn't it?For a cold rainy night, this hot potato soup will keep you warm and comfortable during this kind of weather.  Here's my husband Frederick's recipe he made for me. This is creamy and delicious and Allen (Airene's son) loved it, he in fact requested Frederick to cook more next time :-)
