a bowl of soup

is all I wanted when I came in from the cold….

and so I chopped courgettes, peeled potatoes, added stock and warm spices.

I wanted to hibernate …

and so I did until morning.

When I woke my fuzzy head of recent days had subsided – my sinuses felt a little clearer …

and so I got busy with small jobs and make a shepherd pie to warm my son when he is home

late from his road trip. it’s waiting to go into the oven and bubble with homemade goodness.

I sustain those I love with hot food on a winters day …

and so too I am sustained.

    There’s NOTHING like making soup–heals the cook and the “eater”!

  4. Aaah – home made soup – always makes you feel so better!! 😀 So I’m going to have to guess your recipe now?! 😉
    I have a soup post coming up – must be something about this time of year I think – soup loving weather! 😀

  5. Yummy and cozy. Homemade soup and Shepherd’s Pie. Two of my faves! Thanks for reminding me that I’d best be signing off here and getting after my batch for today: Corn and Potato Chowder. Stay warm! Cheers, Gina
