Creamy Potato Soup and potato skin garnish

I’ve been on a slight bit of a rampage lately baking, cooking and exercising, so I haven’t had much time to do anything else and to top it of, I’ve got a sick man on my hands >< He’s been a handful to say the least, moaning and groaning and just acting like he’s dying (  its a head cold).

 

We went for an amazing cycle the other day, I’ve never been to that area and It was just so unbelievable beautiful, but of course we both forgot our phones so we got no evidence to prove we did the ride. We did collect bark from this one tree to put in our vase!
