Sunday Afternoon

A little reading...a little crochet...and some listening...


Reading THIS book.  It's entertaining, enlightening...and very funny!!

Still working on the baby blanket.  Just a few border rows to go...

And listening to another Gregory Alan Isakov CD.  Also good!

Here's the Yarn Along link!



Cooking up a storm, or in this case, tomatoes and soup.  Turning these...
 (an excess of home grown tomatoes)

Into this...



My Zucchini Plus soup...

This is what I put in it, but you can use whatever you've got, in whatever quantities you like...

Zucchini, onion, garlic, leek, bacon, celery, onion, potatoes, vegetable stock, herbs (bay leaf, dill, thyme, rosemary, oregano), spices (cardamom, allspice, cumin).  When cooked, discard bay leaf and stir in chopped parsley.  I also blended some of the soup and returned to pot. Yummy with toasted sourdough!

Need to make another Orange and Blueberry teacake too, but that can wait till tomorrow.

Off to Eat, Crochet, Read...

    1. Hi Lisa - cardamom in my 'spice of the moment', I tend to use it in just about everything...sweet and savoury! xx
