Frost & Cooking



























So winter is really set in here as the frost didn't leave the trees and bushes all day today, it was
really pretty. At least the fog lifted so we could appreciate the prettiness, when George and I walked the dog we had frost on the ends of our hair and the dog had frosty whiskers!!! I also took pictures of the spider webs today.


As it was too cold to go out far I did some cooking, I'm not a cook, I can't bear to cook in fact. Normally I find it tedious get bored half way through, do something else while I'm waiting and then it burns!!! I had an urge today to make soup, strange as that may seem, it must be the cold weather. So I made vegetable soup and it was delicious, even the kids thought so. I used a recipe from the Sainsburys site but had bought the ingredients from Tesco as Gary works there. Then as if that culinary masterpiece wasn't enough I also made Sausages and Roasted Vegetables for tea, which the kids weren't so keen on but I guess you can't win everytime!! No photos of the cooking I was too excited that it looked edible and wasn't burnt, I'm going to make some more soup tomorrow to freeze for the week!!! This soesn't sound like me at all.

I've decided to take pictures of the kids on a Saturday regularly, obviously on other days as well but at least on a Saturday so that some get taken weekly throughout the year. Today they were on the computer a lot of the day so it seems appropriate that todays photo is this one. They were playing Club Penguin and doing some missions, they managed well together most of the time with only the odd fight!!!

Love the frosty pictures, and well done on making soup. One of my resolutions for the year is to learn to cook, think I should start with soup.
