Thanks Damsel.. I've bookmarked the site, will definitely try this one. 
And the curried potatoes too. I'm a curry nut. ;)

I just scarfed down three bowls of this stuff.  It's so addictive!  We
didn't have leeks, but we had a large onion, so I substituted.  Came
out a bit oniony, but I'm okay with that.  We didn't have parsley or
chives, either.  Actually, we didn't have chicken broth, so I used
boullion (sp) powder and water.

We're still having problems with the outlets in the kitchen, so I made
it on the stove top instead of the crock pot.  I might start doing
that all the time.  It cooked MUCH faster!  The soup came out a little
on the thin side, and I can't plug my immersion blender in, so we
added instant mashed potato flakes (Shhhh!  Don't tell anyone!) to
thicken it.
