Potato Leek Soup

The soup I made tonight was wonderful.  I followed Elise's recipe on Simply Recipes exactly, and I highly recommend making it!  I chose this recipe for dinner because I was able to use three items from my CSA box...potatoes, leeks and parsley.

3 large leeks, cut lengthwise, separate, clean, then chop (using only the white and pale green parts)
2 Tbsp butter
2 cups water
2 cups vegetable broth
2 lbs potatoes, peeled, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
Marjoram - dash
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
tabasco sauce (only in Chris' bowl)
salt & pepper

As soon as we finish trying a new recipe, I always ask Chris what he thought, so I know if it's something I should make again.  Approximately half of the time, he says "good but it could use..." and the answer is always meat.  Tonight's response was "good but it could use ham."
