Home Alone!

We had a long weekend at home with Andrew's family in Oxfordshire. Whilst we were there we tried some of Andrew's dad's wide variety of flavoured vodkas, from grapefruit, lemon, black cherry and rhubarb. We got some good tips and cocktail recipes, so watch this space.

Andrew went to Fort William for some site work on Tuesday for a couple of days, so I am home alone!

Last week before we left for England, I managed to give my supervisor chapter 1, so now I have moved on to chapter 2. Woo hoo!

The veg box arrived today with the driver running to my door to escape from the rain. When I was down south it was 22 degrees. I was thinking that I will have to stop making soup for lunch. The weather has changed again, so I think we will be OK on the soup for a little longer.

In the box this week:

  • Purple sprouting broccoli
  • Leeks
  • Salad leaves
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Beetroot
  • Swedes
I made some leek and potato soup and soda bread rolls for lunch. Here is picture of my table on a Wednesday lunchtime, this is actually tidy for me. Hmmm, maybe I wasn't working hard enough today. . .

Hi, I'm so glad you'll be joining us on our baking adventures! and pleased you commented so I can now add you to my google reader and add your site to my blog!

Leek and potato soup is a personal favourite of ours; planning to make one again for lunch today and it's nice to show your 'work space' all clean and tidy too. ;)

I'll have to take a photo one day of where I tend to blog.
