Red Pepper Soup

Red Pepper Soup

This is an old favourite recipe of mine, and I often use it as a starter when we have people round for dinner.  Soup as a starter is easy as can be prepared in advance and just warmed through as guests arrive. This recipe is low in fat and it can also be frozen too.  Its a bit of a faff skinning the peppers, but well worth it.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I love making soup in  the slow cooker.  This is one of my family favourites, and I often make it on a Sunday.  I start first thing on a Sunday morning (the oven is generally on cooking breakfast!), and get the soup going whilst we take the kids out for the morning.  Nothing beats going out to the park or for a walk on a mild winter’s or autumnal day and returning home to a warm soup for lunch.

The first proper week in January

It’s been a weird and hectic week.  Starting Monday with going back to work after a lovely Christmas, and in typical New Year fashion I managed to catch myself a stinker of a cold, not great, but hey no excuse to slack!
