Brrr. It's getting flipping cold here in Southern Ireland. The mountains nearby all have castor sugar coverings today. Now I see why Sugar Mountain got it's name. Think there are 6 'Sugar' mountains in Ireland and 200 in the world?
Any road. Today we decided to make some vegetable soup and a loaf of bread. The stove is lit, so why not use it to make some food?
Here's What You Do.
You don't need to measure or weigh anything. It just depends how many mouths you are feeding. I made half a pan full, because I know this will make two bowls of soup. Just peel some carrots, onions, celery, potatoes, peas and slice them and throw them into a big pan and pour in a jug of stock. I used one beef OXO cube because I couldn't find the chicken stock ones. Place it on the stove and leave it to cook for a few hours. It really is easy and full of vitamins and you know there are no preservatives in it. Number 2 son said to me:
"Is it Heinz soup? I only eat Heinz soup!"
"No. No it's, 'My' soup."
The bread is an 'Oudlums' brown bread mix from ye olde supermarket, which you just add some milk to and follow the instructions.
