swede soup


this is a swede.
 In the last view weeks we've signed on with a fruit and veg co op. One of the cool things about it is that we've had vegetables that we wouldn't normally buy. Like swedes. I'd never cooked a swede before today (Mr Neat wondered if it was like cooking a Norwegian. Funny isn't he!) So here's the rough recipe for the swede and friends soup.

2 leeks (white part only)
1 swede
1/4 pumpkin (preferably not butternut)
3 small white sweet potatoes
3-4 small potatoes (or 1-2 large potatoes)
1litre stock (I just used a tetra pak of stock but you can make your own or just use water.)

Heat olive oil in pot (I use my le creuset). Add sliced leek and cook slowly until soft. Add other vegetables and cover with stock. Simmer until vegetables are soft. You may need to add more water. When vegetables are soft, puree.

Eat up!

hello again!

Well it's been ages and ages but it's nice to be back at the keyboard.

Where have I been?

Sadly nowhere. But I did get a job and it's been a bit crazy juggling family, working, church and crafting.

The other day the lovely Mr Neat minded the kids while I went on a photography course with my gorgeous sister in law Leanne.

We took pictures of fruit and veggies and flowers








boats and buildings ...





moving cars (one with the car blurry and the background in focus and one with the car in focus and the background blurry - that bit was kind of tricky)





 



and of course photos of the lovely Leanne
