easing into the New Year...
a wee bit of shopping
seen on my walk
juggled my umbrella and bag of groceries
reached into my handbag and grabbed my IPhone
to capture this image.
I could not pass this by...
A stunning shade of orange
these flowers stand out against the bark of the nearby tree
soft delicate pendulous petals.
A hearty bowl of chili with a dollop of sour cream.
1 diced onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 1/2 pounds of ground beef, chicken or turkey
19 oz can kidney beans
19 oz can chopped tomatoes
12 oz can kernel corn
7 1/2 can tomato paste
1 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
Simmer 45 minutes
serve with a dollop of sour cream
Snow drops popping up through the soil.
Easy "Peasy" Pea Soup
Dice an onion and add 4 - 6 cups of vegetable stock.
Bring to a boil over high heat
reduce to medium low
cook for 5 minutes uncovered until onion is tender
Add 1000g (2 lbs) frozen peas
bring back to the boil and cook til peas are done
Using an immersion blender puree the soup
make sure you get all the lumps out
you can thin it with a bit more stock if it is too thick.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream
(a fabulous flavourful soup)
