Then summer came. Not with a whimper but with a BANG!! Sheesh.
Himself's uncle came to the rescue. His alittlement over the summer got busy and produced copious amounts of vegetables - more than he could soup and freeze so he invited us over for cake and coffee and a share of the spoils!
So far, we've eaten or frozen - leek and potato soup, parsnip and butter bean soup and thick farm house veg and pearl barley soup. (Recipes either used from or inspired by various River Cottage hand books)
Just perfect for lunch on a cold and wet weekend - dunking hunks of bread with lots of licking of fingers - bliss :)
What soups do you make?
Do you dunk hunks of bread? (ooh so naughty)
Do you find it warms you right down to your toes?
Go on spill the beans (or soup them!)
Oh yes - I had a super-bumper crop of sweet peas, nasturtium and borage - thank you for asking......
