Food...Glorious Food

I spent some of the day in the kitchen today , which allowed me some time to think and ruminate. Everybody needs a little down time. Getting back to basics. Showing peeps the love by making good things to eat.
I made chicken vegetable soup (from scratch)


A triple lot of curry  in the slow cooker...one for dinner tonight and another two lots for the freezer. Well, that was the plan ...people kept taste testing while it was cooking...so we only have one for the freezer. By the way I grew that mint, and brought it back from the brink of death after our recent heatwave. (If you knew anything about me and gardening and maintaining  green living things you'd be giving me a standing ovation)


And vanilla mocha cupcakes for dessert, several of which didn't make it to see dinner time.  RIP Cupcakes. We appreciate your sacrifice.

Oh wow, everything looks so good. I love home made soup. I'm trying not to look at the desert cause I swear every time I look at one I gain a pound.
