Always brush before bed.  Dinner was dire.  It was a burger, apparently.  Dry and tasteless, I couldn't eat more than two mouthsfull. *Mrs Mounter would be so proud of me.star

I'll try that again!

And back to soup tongue

On the Saturday after we have moved dad we have friends coming to lunch and I want to do soup. Vegetables have to be hidden as one of them (male) does not do veg! Want to find a tasty easy soup. Any suggestions please?

Good luck with that one, I don't know any soups that don't have vegetables in.

I'll try that again!

You could always puree the veg then chuck in the meat. But I can't think of an actual recipe at the moment.

Aly, if it is possible to whizz up the veg as Mike says - red pepper, tomato and carrot soup is wonderful - all that beta-carotene. Is there anyone who doesn't enjoy tomato soup? I also put in sliced onion and a dash of Worcestershire sauce to give it some oomph! Cook it long enough that, when whizzed, you can't see what is in it!  ok

What about French onion soup, one that I love,, goes lovely with some good crusty bread and a bit of grated cheese.

I prefer Soup to any Meal, my Mum had a big black Witches Pot, which she kept on the back of the old Coal fired Range, my Dad worked Shifts, so he always had something hot, when he came in us too, When we lived in Wick , it was like Siberia, in Winter, not that I have ever been to Siberia. But the comfort of that hot Soup when it was perishing. She used to buy half a Sheep's Head, can you imagine that now.wave
