yes it most certainly is...
john, jackson and i moved...we're kinda settled...yesterday marked 10 months to our wedding date...and of course the 30th year anniversary of a legend's death...these days i'm not really too into the wedding...i have everything done except for the music and transportation for the bridal party...
i've been hibernating lately...and playing with jackson...we take long walks and play ball for hours...i've also been playing in the kitchen a lot...i've made some comforting meals...

two shallots chopped very finely
3 pieces of bacon sliced into bits
8 cups of water or stock of your choice (i used water)

1 tablespoon both chives and tarragon
cook bacon pieces until crispy. remove from pan and set aside. saute leeks and shallots in bacon grease until slightly caramelized...add potatoes and water...salt and pepper and let simmer for 1 hour...until potatoes are cooked and mushy...blend mixture with a hand blender...or put in a blender (be very careful)...until very smooth...add 1 cup of whipping cream, chives and tarragon and the bacon...mix very well...and enjoy...
