I wish for some soup..


Holy heck! Soup?! Savoury food?! What is this madness?! This is delicious madness.

(Yes, dear mother, I do eat vegetables.)

As a first time soup maker, I was nervous.. especially as my turn for soup week at work is coming up.

Thankfully this soup turned out yummy. Really how can you go wrong with adding stuff to a pot and heating it up?
