Okay, first of all Happy New Year to you and everyone you love! I hope that 2014 will be everything you hope it will be.
On a personal note I must say that I don't think we could have a worse year than 2013 so we are very cautiously optimistic about this year.
Tomorrow we are going back to work and back to school and I really should be cleaning the kitchen and the lounge but nah I have neglected my blog for way too long. The good news is that I got a mini iPad from my work so I'll be able to blog on the train to or from work, meaning more regular posts, I hope.
We have been having the mildest winter in years. The temperature has been averaging around 8 - 10 deg / 46 - 50F without a hint of snow. Some days are sunny but most of them are grey and wet. Today is one of those with a drop in the temperature to 3 / 39. And what is better than a nice bowel of soup on a day like today.
Problem is my family is not big on soup. The only soup they like is potato soup and let's face it it's not really soup, or is it? Anyway, despite this fact I decided to try a 'new' soup on them, tomato, basil cheddar soup.
Yum! It was amazing! Himself even asked for seconds! The kids were less enthusiastic about it but I'm not too worried about that. I'm sure you all have this recipe already but just in case you don't this is the one I used, try it you will not be disappointed!
