Welcome to my new follower Ikling, glad to have you on board the Norfolk Express!
Last night was our
half term Chinese takeaway with our chums from school. A good and
jolly time was had by those who came. We walked home along frosty
pavements, getting into a barely warm house at 10.45pm. Although the
wood burner had gone out, we had laid our jim jams out to capture its
final warmth and it was a pleasure to sit in them whilst we watched
the end of the Folk Awards.
This time of year,
we nearly always have soup for lunch so yesterday, I set to and made
a large pan of lentil, tomato and vegetable.
This is it before it has been whizzed up.
DB had the remains of a
polish smoked sausage in the fridge so he had some of that chopped up
and later dried fried.
The paprika oil was added to the soup. I'm not too
keen so had the addition of grated cheese on mine. For Christmas, he
had receive 5 mini bottle of varying degrees of hotness chilli sauce.
Each time we have a bowl of soup, some of it gets added into the
bottom of our bowls.
This was the
leftover peelings from preparing the soup and was added to our mini
indoor compost bin.
This is how full it gets, 2 or 3 times a week.
is then put into one of the large outdoor compost bins to work its
magic. You will note also, the full tin of tea leaves, ready to go
around my acid loving plants. I'm hoping it will help raise my
alkaline soil ever so slightly so that they don't suffer too much.
Time will tell.
