School Hollidays..


It is vacation time here and with Winter comes colds and flu and well, you guessed it, two of the four kids have it. Ahhh, sharing the love. Anyway, when they are all over it we plan on doing alot of fun things that I will surely take pictures of and blog about...until then, I am making soups and juices and drawing lots of things for the girls to color in. So, now, without further adieu, I give you...
THE SOUP POEM
Take one whole yummy Butternut Pumpkin,
Cut lovingly into equal bits,
Sliced so thinly,
Mind you save the pips,
One whole purple onion,
Swiftly chop it up,
Get some chicken stock,
At least half a cup,
Place all ingredients into a saucepan,
Make sure to stir it around,
Simmer for at least 40 minutes.
When the timer rings,
You can choose to do
A couple of things,
Leave the soup as it is,
Or blend it smooth and make it thick,
If you like some cream
You can add it.
For me I prefer some thick slices of bread
Dunk it in and slurp it up
Mmmmmm, yummm!!!

Ohhh I like soup! I gave Aidan and myself food poisoning with a chicken soup once, but my vegetable soup is pretty good!!

Oh, here's a nice story: When Aidan and I first started dating, we lived quite a long way apart - I was in Hawthorn, he was in Seaford. I got sick, a nasty cold, and he drove all the way from Seaford to bring me chicken soup. How sweet is that! :)
