Update: Today I found a recipe for potato leek soup that my friend Shannon gave me – she raved about it. This blog is a shameless plug to ask her to please make me some. Please!
On a side note, Macaroni Grill has half-price wine night on Thursdays. (cheap, chain restaurant date night? Don’t mind if I do.) S and I bought a large, 8-glass bottle of Macaroni Grill’s house chianti (for $15.99 – all class, all the time), didn’t finish it all, and brought it home. And I have to say, here I am four nights later and it is still delicious! AND I drank it all weekend while S was out of town. So much wine, and so tasty! Bang for my buck! Bang for YOUR buck!
