Wednesday night's menu

One thing I do love about Winter is soup.

I could happily scoff it all year round.

A good hunk of crusty bread, Antiques Roadshow, a large spoon and a bib, and I'm happy.

O, and a noice bottle of vino.

I'm wearing a fab vintage frock that my darling Vix sent me last year.

I've taken it up a wee bit.

Pure green!

Cream of spinach!

I like cunning ways to get a pile of veges into me.

Like frittata's, or quiche. Or soup.

So cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.

I've had a mix of songs on my internal radio today, particularly "Tragedy" (Bee Gees) and "Rat in the Kitchen" (UB40). Yesterday it was "Run to the Hills" (Iron Maiden), which is only disconcerting when I have to do the lead break.

Disconcerting to those around me, that is.

Oooh you look good enough to eat in your frock and co-ordinating pinny my dear - and you even managed a beautiful rose for us. Your hair is looking particularly spectacular today, have you done something to it? a
And ummm ... can I join you for dinner? Today I've had Johnny Cash's "Orange Blossom Special" playing on my internal mix-tape. Thank god The Phoenix and The Stylist like to help me make up the words - rock on darlin' !! xoxoxoxo

The soup looks delish! I am going to have to try making cream of spinach soup.
I also had soup for dinner.(Turkey Vegetable)

The dress looks to fit you PERFECTLY!

I love the pic of your kitties snuggling in the sidebar how sweet!

Straight Talking Mama! said...

mmm I love home made soup, that looks delish! I too wish I could eat soup all year round but it seems to heat you up too much when the weather gets nicer doesn't it?!!

Rachel - Firebird said...

Soup is the best - we make up a big pot a least once a week. So good for using up leftovers.

Another gorgeous frock there lady

Georgia Rose said...

Oh my god, your kitchen looks amazing! And you too!

Soup is the best part about winter. I'm so glad other people enjoy Antiques Roadshow, I look forwards to it so much! My boy loves it too, very convenient.

Miss Peregrin said...

Mmmm, that soup looks delicious! I could really go for some of that right now. I love your beautiful frock, and apron. You look fab!

Alex said...

Soup, soup, glorious soup! I make it all the time but I must admit I'm rubbish at the more interesting varieties - I tend to just whack a load of veg and stock in a pot and boil it for half an hour. Always turns out well though!

That bread looks delumptious too.

delia hornbook said...

Kelly said...

Most glam looking chef I've ever seen!
And I love the look of the soup, perfect way to get the veggies in. Soups are lush, my favourite is stilton and broccoli with a blob of creme fraiche added in.


Kandi said...

I love your spotty frock! The way you wear your cardies always looks fab and really flatters your booboids and waist ~ I must try it!
I have an internal radio too and today it's playing Natalie Merchant ~ 'If no one ever marries me'; getting funny looks singing this over and over ~ considering I've been married twice (the single men are running for cover).

Vintage Vixen said...

You are a dish! You'd give that Nigella bird a run for her money. That soup looks delicious but you are hotter.
That frock looks divine shorter, maximum leggage!
Love you!
