Cut tops form bread about 3/4" thick to make "lids". Using a sharp knife,
cut around inside of loaf leaving 3/4" edge for the "bowl". Hollow out the

In large pot, combine potatoes, leeks, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring
to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 15-20 min. or until
vegetables are tender.
Strain soup into another pan. Place cooked potatoes and leeks in blender or
food processor with about 1/4 cup broth and process until smooth. return to
pan. Stir in cream and nutmeg. Spoon into hot prepared bread bowls. Sprinkle
with parsley.

I gratefully accept the compliment and hope everyone enjoys the recipe.
It's really good soup.  I'm dealing with some tough issues at the moment so
I can use all the compliments anyone cares to dish up :-)

Hi jill I hope your somewhat *tough* issues lead you to a nervous
breakdown, may you never step foot out of the OPH ever again. I also
hope the care staff will force feed you and chuck you in a bath of
Domestos everyday. Please view this as a compliment.

You're welcome.

okbye
