Relaxing Sundays and home made Vegetable Soup

Posted on

Today we have opted for relaxing.  It’s been a week of rushing about so sometimes having a relaxing day is lovely. Seren-Grace and I have been reading books and playing with the Ikea drawing easel.

Meanwhile I realised my fridge needed a good clean and while I was emptying it found lots of rather sad vegetables so decided to make a vegetable soup.

Vegetable soup is one of those easy things to cook no recipe required just use what you have. It will always remind me of my Grandma. She made hugs pots of it all year round and it probably was to use up vegetable bits rather than throw them out. She over salted it more often than not but still I hold memories of warm bowls of soup so thick your spoon would stand up quite fondly. Mine is not as salted lol. I started with that good old base of onion and celery. A potato has been added to help thicken the soup then basically I added what I had in my fridge that needed using up. It’s all bubbling away nicely now.

Yummmm can’t wait till its ready later. I let it boil then added it to the slow cooker to continue to slow cook the rest of the afternoon. Ready for some lovely fresh baked bread at supper time.

I also finished the bottom half of the Halloween costume. More about that later.

This afternoon I might actually sit and watch a movie. No baking no sewing no computer work. That’s a rare thing for me it really is a lazy day lol.

Added note 6pm. Watched Mirror Mirror and it’s now my favourite Sunday afternoon movie. The soup is gorgeous. I made some dumplings to make the meal feel fuller. Must admit it’s better than my Nana’s was. Sorry Nana.
