What else do you do on a cold wet Monday in August?
Bake bread that your other half thinks you've popped to the bakers and bought, compliment in their somewhere I'm sure, and what else would you have with fresh baked bread but soup.
This is my vegetable soup that I usually hang on to make until September but as it was so cold and autumnal there was nothing else for it.
Recently I've heard of two very talented ladies who have sadly passed away.
Wink from a creative being blog back in June and Sarah from Yarn and whatnot blog only last week.
Both these ladies were only young and Sarah leaves a husband and five young children behind.
It is at times like these that I think about my own immortality and I start to think about all the things I still need to do for my children. I have a list of things I want to do so that they will always have a part of me with them long after I'm gone. I really need to start and tackle the things on the list as I am once again reminded that none us knows what's around the corner.
I am a bit of a hoarder of notebooks I have them for most things, keeping a record of the books I read, one for my crochet, knitting and cross stitch projects and there is even one in my handbag for shopping lists.
These two however are to write down recipes I use. All three of the big kids can cook but I still get asked how to make a particular thing every now and then. This got me to thinking that I should start and write them down.
Today I have made a start.....
