Campout at Villanueva, Part 1-Potato Leek Soup

Potato Leek SoupMy husband and I decided to “get out of Dodge,” and go camping. We decided to go to Villanueva State Park, one of my favorite New Mexico parks. It was more crowded than we expected, but still very relaxing. For one of our dinners, I made Potato Leek Soup on the propane stove, and Spinach Pesto Pinwheel Rolls in the Dutch oven. Today, I will share the soup recipe; and will post the recipe for the rolls next time.
