Made it this morning.  I chopped finely, one onion (with the mandoline), sweated it off in some sunflower oil, squeezed the smoked garlic out of its skin and squished it a bit on top of the onions. Drained a jar of Roast red pepper, chopped them up and added to saucepan, followed by a small can of chopped tomatoes, a Knorr chicken stock pot, a whole raw head of garlic and a can of water.  Cooked until the garlic was soft, removed from pan and squeezed soft garlic into soup.  Stirred and served.  Lush and will taste even better tomorrow.

I'll try that again!

This has to be the best tasting soup that I have ever made and apart from a little chopping it was also the easiest.  I don't think it will last very long...

I'll try that again!

Good for you TA, perhaps you will make it often & develop a taste for for cooking once again. You told us you used to cook a lot at one time.

Yes, I did used to cook a lot and very well too.  I think lack of practice is my problem. That and the fact that I dislike being in OH's kitchen, the counter-tops are just too high for me to be comfortable and his knives are not sharp enough.

I'll try that again!

The same amount that went into mine except he used two that were smoked whereas I used one smoked and one raw. 

That Gino D'Acampo thinks he is so good looking! 

I'll try that again!

No, not watching TV, the link that Simon put up was a Gino recipe and his picture was there too.  He does get on my nerves.

I'll try that again!

Here we go again, what's the point of just copy/pasting part of a previous post?  I just don't get it, where's the sense in it, what do they get out of it?

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

Perhaps they don't know how the system works. Let's hope they get the hang of it.

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...
