I've had quite a productive day today between one thing and another. But I have to admit to not rising from my kip (sleep) until 9am. I don't normally lie in that late but this morning I did - I reckon I must have needed it!!
Once I was finally ready for the day I went out and did my grocery shopping - a job I really don't like but is a necessity.
Once home from that and having got lunch out of the way I decided I wanted to make a BIG pot of soup.
I make vegetable soup - mainly because it is the best way to get veg into my family. Now I really enjoy my veg but the rest of them don't. So I put leek, onion, carrots, swede, potato and best of all brussel sprouts (I love brussel sprouts:)) along with all that goes stock and red lentils. I leave it to simmer for a few hours and then mash it up a bit and voila a tasty pot of soup. My family love it and are always asking me to make it.
You canny beat a bowl of soup - the best comfort food around!!!
After making that I decided to make some cookies. Karen is the main baker in the house now and I don't normally get a look in - but today I did. So I made some double chocolate chip cookies.
They did turn out quite good. You know there is the magical time to take them out of the oven - just before they go to crispy!!!
For desert tonight we had said cookies and mint choc chip ice-cream. I was getting praise all around for my cookies - now that can't be bad eh? I had better watch or they will get used to this great cooking lol.
A couple of pictures of my winning cookies. I have to admit though - they were quite good :)))
Hope everybody is having a good weekend.
