From the Women's Weekly Complete Book of Modern Classics. I adapted the recipe a bit - and served it with Uncle Ben's 2-minute rice - lol. It was pretty good, though I wish I'd made more spiced salt - that was really tasty. :-) Also for this: http://daysmeanmore.blogspot.com/2010/11/20x20-project.html - "try 20 new recipes". :-)
For the 20x20 "try 20 new recipes": http://daysmeanmore.blogspot.com/search/label/20x20%20project This is Cream of Carrot Soup from the book Van Gogh's Table At the Aberge Ravoux by Alexandra Leaf and Fred Leeman. The soup came out thinner and more like a broth than I thought it would (given that I've never made soup before) but the taste was there, so next time I'm going to adjust the quantities of liquid :-)
Patrick "helping" Jeremy with the dishes. The picture is unintentionally blurry but I like it - it captures a certain moment in time that's already passing faster than we realise.
Bookmarks, February 16
It's my sister, Barbara's birthday next month, and I've been very organised, for once. I frayed the edges of the one on the left (obviously - lol) and I'm going to back the other with some coloured card ... once I get some decent glue ...
This counts as a 20x20 "Try 20 new foods" entry because before today, I had never eaten fresh raspberries. I had, of course, eaten raspberry FLAVOURED things, but not the real thing itself. And oh, my what a revelation! Soooo good!! Sweet and a little bit tart and juicy and gorgeous. Om nom nom nom nom
