Sign of cold weather
One of the signs of the approach of the colder weather is when I get the itch to have soup. It’s been nagging me for a few days, I raided the freezer to see if there was any, but no, all gone, so I thought to myself, accept it gal, the days of salad are over, time to get the slow cooker out, visit the butcher and buy some nice smoked ham.
Did it to-day, picked up some carrot and a fresh pack of lentils and now the slow cooker is emitting the most delicious smell of lentil soup with carrot and coriander and a dash of mixed chilli and allspice. That’s tomorrows and next day’s lunch sorted, then I’ll freeze the rest. Smells good.
