Apple Cauliflower Soup

February 9th, 2010 by Heidi

We did manage to pop to the shops on the weekend, we had to, we needed cat food. While we were there we of course checked the reduced shelves, and found a couple of cauliflowers, one regular one orange. Which was fortunate in more than one way as it turns out that little Miss Lynn is rather fond of cauliflower leaves!


Soup & chips

So Thursday evening I found myself trying to figure out what my Fight Back Friday post should be about, and what we should have for dinner, and came to the conclusion – soup and chips!


Pondering parsnips

November 10th, 2009 by Heidi

This weekend saw the final harvest from our summer garden, the parsnips. We had planted parsnips last year but they hadn’t been terribly successful; although as we found some roots when digging this year that rather resemble parsnips and are in the right area, we think that perhaps we accidentally ‘weeded’ last years crop!


Captivating carrots

November 3rd, 2009 by Heidi

I realize that traditionally the orange vegetable you are supposed to work with on Halloween is pumpkin, but as we had picked up a huge bag of carrots for a very reasonable price I figured it was a fair substitution and so spent a good part of my Halloween in the kitchen creating with carrots.


Super Soups!

October 16th, 2009 by Heidi

As I mentioned the other day (in Gingery Goodness) we had quite a score in the grocery store last weekend and it led to quite a bit of kitchen time.


Tomato Soup

April 20th, 2009 by Heidi

So we have been eating a lot of soup lately as we have stopped going to the grocery store very often and pickings are a little thin after the winter. One of my favourite’s has always been cream of tomato, and I recently discovered that adding cheese curds adds protein and is very tasty! Now both Steve and my Dad think this is very odd, but isn’t cheese and tomato a standard combination? I would like to know what you all think?
