A busy start to 2016!

It’s been a cold and busy start to 2016!  That is a good thing 😀

First of all we had a spattering of snow…..nothing like everyone up the east coast of the US and Canada….we don’t do snow properly in Western Europe 😉

This is just the perfect weather for hunkering down in your favourite pjs and make a ton of delicious and nutritious soup, isn’t it?  DSCF2624.JPG

So, I took a look in the cupboards and found a can of three bean salad, some red cabbage, pasatta, two onions, potatoes and carrots….the start of something good! 😉

I also added a healthy splash of Lea & Perrins (Worcestershire sauce (pronounced wooster’shu 😉 ), and a vegetable stock cube.  I chopped to my heart’s content and whacked it all in the pressure cooker with water, of course, and went back to work…..yes, I was working!

And when I had finished my home was filled with the lovely aroma of homemade soup!

DSCF2626Et voilà!

I’ve been productive with baking …. I really do enjoy baking. I don’t enjoy cleaning up afterwards though. LOL Flour is a pest for clinging to surfaces that you thought you’d already cleaned! 😛

Gorgeous, yummy bread rolls…..  DSCF2640

And, most hilarious of all…..exploding and expanding bread dough in the fridge, yes, fridge!! :-O

It was so funny to open the fridge one morning and see this!DSCF2642  It literally burst out of the tub and broke it! Argh!

I obviously seem to be using some kind of mega-yeast! hehehehe!

On the plus side of this, it made tons of rolls, pittas, and even a loaf! :-O

LOL Abundance!

Happy Frugalling! x
