<div style=Do you spend a lot of time thinking what to make for dinner? I do, but I suppose this is what you do when you are a mother, isn’t it? Come on ladies, talk to me, tell me what you do. How do you plan your dinners at home. I would love to hear and learn from you all. Back to me, I am the cook in our house during the week. I usually plan my dinners before I do the shopping but the last few weeks I have been a bit all over the place. We’ve been going shopping with no shopping list which naturally enough ends badly where the shopping budget is concerned! Even with a full fridge it seems like there’s nothing to eat in there! Ok I’m just rambling, this all must say something about my state of mind. Being a mother of 3 is not and easy job. Anyway Soup in this warm weather seems strange but I needed to use up some of the veggies and honestly I wanted some hearty healthy food in my body. And and and it’s in one pot so less dishes! I just had to brown the meat, add all the ingredients and simmer. I thought I was cooking enough for 2 nights, how wrong I was. I sometimes cook in the morning so that I can take the picture in the natural sunlight so at 12 o’clock I was in the back garden taking pictures. When I was finished I sat down and ate both of the bowl of soup you see in the picture. I meant to have one but it was too bloody good! Ssshhh…
