Leek and Yam Chowder #recipe

A must try -  Leek and Yam Chowder Recipe!  Fast, easy and perfect for a cool fall evening!  

This is another fall family favorite in our home and it is something I would have never thought I would crave.

After going on Jude's field trip (more to come on that trip) we ended up with a ton of fresh produce on our counter tops.  Yum!  So I had to figure out what we were going to do with it all.  
First up...use our leeks and SOME of the potatoes that we harvested at a local farm by making this great chowder!
