      I don't know what possessed me to make hot soup on the last day of June. I did have some leftover leeks I wanted to use up. Boy, did this smell wonderful while it was cooking, though. I really didn't change anything much about the recipe. I added some dill, which was fine. I also mixed several kinds of grated cheese, and I think it would have been better and had a bit more flavor with something like parmesan or very sharp cheddar. Nice recipe, Jen.
