Connecting…we ate soup
I’m close with an older lady who lives in our street who I visit regularly…I find it such a joy to be
able to spend time with her as she shares stories from her past..she is also very funny and makes me laugh.
Recently she called me and said “come over and have some soup” she’d made it that afternoon.
The weather has started to cool here in Melbourne so I jumped at the chance of a bowl of soup and a chat.
The soup was delicious so I couldn’t wait to get the ingredients the next morning to make it for my family for the weekend. I particularly liked the hint of ginger that flavoured the soup, my friend told me it helps to keep colds away in winter.
She was also clearing out her cupboards and gave me this beautiful light green crystal bowl which I couldn’t resist making a trifle in. This trifle was one of my late Father In Laws favourite desserts as made by my Sister In Law Hilary..a few years ago I asked her for the recipe.
Hunting in some vintage shops the other day I came across one of these old hand whisks we use to whisk cream with when I was little so thought it would be fun for my youngest daughter to give it a go.
I haven’t started knitting my scarf yet..I haven’t knitted in a long time so thought I’d start out practicing with this lovely coloured wool that caught my eye.
If you have any questions about these recipes or just want to say hello don’t hesitate to send me an email I’d love to hear from you.
