Hmmm... Soup!

Well if you know me at all you will know that i am not particularly domesticated! I haven't been married a year yet, but i am gradually picking up the housewifely jobs. I am particularly proud of myself in the last few weeks as i have been making soup! A lovely lady names Penny that i had the priviledge to work with last term gave me this recipe for Tomato Rice Soup. Sounds a little odd but i have found it great for taking to work as a quick lunch!

1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 can of stock
1 onion
handful of rice (or however much you want)
Tbl spn Dried herbs

Its sooooo easy to make, obviously as i can make it. I like to add a few extras to it too like some finely chopped pepper, bacon and sometimes a sprinkle of chilli flakes to give it a kick. If i have it, i like to use fresh basil too instead of the dried herbs. The good thing about this recipe is its made up of things you'll have in your cupboard! So no forward planning required! (Thank goodness!)

I'm new to this blogging lark and thought i'd take some pictures as i made it. Granted the picture of it cooking does not look very appertising! But it is scrummy!

My sister Mel has just given me a recipe for a thai chicken soup which i may give a go. If you know of any easy recipes along this line, please leave me a message!
