Soup

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest12727

All this talk today of cold weather has spurred me into making soup.

Just made big batches of roast red capsicum and tomato soup and my winter staple, butternut pumpkin soup.

 

Bought bags of capsicums and tomatoes from our greengrocer for a few dollars each and pumpkins are very cheap at the moment too.

 

This weeks lunches sorted.

 

Anyone got a good recipe for the ham bone I froze after xmas?

Ham and pea soup is always good. I love it. :-)

 

I was talking about making onion soup yesterday. Must be the weather lol.

Sounds good.

 

My favourites to make are carrot and ginger and also broccoli and leek with stilton. Yum.

I like Stilton and onion (big onion theme going on with me ha ha).

 

I've actually been buying a few pre made ones recently. Most are pretty flavourless, but there is a pouch one made by Taylor's. Spinach and asparagus and it's lovely.

Ooooohhhhh, celery and Stilton soup is lovely too!

 

My other half doesn't eat soup or stews (I know, odd) so I hardly get to have them any more. :-(

Lol. We had roast lamb tonight and I've managed to convince my other half that I'm making a lamb and onion casserole. :-)

After all, you can't deny a pregnant woman can you? Although 'I'm craving' has come out of his mouth a worrying number of times in the last couple of weeks. Maybe he is the pregnant one. :-D

Why are so many men fussy eaters? I blame their Mothers. Amazingly, my OH now eats loads of things he 'didn't like' when we first met.

Maybe he just doesn't want to have to cook for himself?

 

Talk of stews and casseroles, it must be time for the slow cooker to come out. Lamb shanks anyone?

Curry,Curry,Curry + Chilli. Nice and warming and the only food I'll eat warmed up!

 

 

Had a nice tin of Chorizo and pasta chunky soup I dug out of the larder today - that was warming!

I know! All I can get him to eat in the way of veggies is potato, onion, tomato, sometimes a bit of swede and that's about it. He's even taken over most of the cooking as he doesn't like me trying to sneak veggies in.

I've told him once the baby comes he's going to have to at least pretend to eat his veggies. :-D

Talking of slow cookers, did this the other night - was really yummy: put some sprigs of rosemary in bottom of slow cooker, add cup of chicken stock, put boneless lamb joint on top (I used shoulder), rub with seedy mustard and honey (I didn't rub, just poured a bit on top of joint), Cook for about 8 hours on low. Meat fell apart and juices made good gravy! Simple as and quick enough to throw in before work so dinner ready when you get home!

      Hi all, I’m a 47 year old single Mum of a 10 year old son. Moved to Adelaide 6 years ago now, currently living in the hills but a move on the cards very soon. Am looking to hopefully forge some new friendships. I’m very young at heart and I love watching live bands and going to music festivals, not quite so enjoyable on your own though especially when the majority of the crowd are 20+ as I say, I’m very young at heart and am a huge fan of most of the music that’s played on triple j. I also love visiting quirky bars and cafes etc, love the beach but also the hills! My son is into skateboarding, scootering and downhill racing! 
      Looking forward to hopefully chatting away to some new people soon ?
