“Oh the wind is lashing lustily
    And the trees are thrashing thrustily
    And the leaves are rustling gustily
    So it’s rather safe to say
    That it seems that it may turn out to be
    It feels that it will undoubtedly
    It looks like a rather blustery day, today
    It sounds that it may turn out to be
    Feels that it will undoubtedly
    Looks like a rather blustery day today.”

But if Pooh was at my house today, where it is actually chilly but sunny, he could warm up with this comforting tasty anti-Blustery day soup!

    Hay’s potato and parmesan soup with parsley pesto

is rich and thick and flavorful with the addition of the pesto – that’s the green swirl you see!! And very easy to make. Sautee the onions and garlic in butter, add peeled, chopped potatoes, cook, and Parmesan cheese and milk and Voilà, you have a soup that will keep you warm all day long.

The pesto is made with parsley but since I couldn’t find ANY (can you belive that?) at the store I used some basil/cashew nut pesto I had hanging out in the fridge.

    Oh. So. Good!!!

This was Kayte’s choice for Donna Hay Wednesday which I am having fun with along with Gaye of Laws of the Kitchen
