I Blinked

I didn't realise that it had been so long since I posted!  I have been full of a very minor cold and very tired.  Also, bear has been very bear as he has had a cold as well and is feeling very fed up.  The four portions of home made soup I froze on Friday have gone.  Bear knows his comfort food! 

I agreed, with some reservations, that bear could make some more home made soup tonight.  I had a Morrisons order coming this morning, so I included a box of wonky veg.  All the contents are going to become soup, except for the kale.  It's going to be the same routine - chop, soften, plenty of garlic, plenty of stock, some spices like turmeric and cumin, blend and freeze. 

This is what a £3 box of wonky veg looked like this morning.

There's quite a bit of kale under there, which is going to be steamed and served with kedgeree tonight. 

I also got an ordinary box of veg for £5, which seemed much the same but with more cabbage/kale/greens.

I don't know that the veg was better quality, but it was prettier. I'm going to look up recipes for cabbage soup.

Bear will be happy to be making soup.  It's not about the actual soup that he may be eating, but more about using the new knife set that I got. 

For those interested, the latest instalment from the White Hart is here.  It was the hardest one I have written so far.
