I like experimenting with different kinds of soup and since a farmer friend gave me some leeks I made this leek and celery soup. My family and I like to have soup and sandwich several times a month and most soups are frozen so for a quick meal I defrost the soup, make up a sandwich and we are eating in no time at all.
