the garden is trimmed and weeded, new flowers are planted, errands are done, so now 'tis time to make soup. first up is cream of asparagus with leeks, then leek and potato, then a hodge podge of green veggies in a beef broth. since the cook is making all these up as she goes, lots of black swan cab is called for! so put your feet up and i will call you when ready to serve
update: the soups are ready and i am still standing ;)
and managed to keep the kitchen somewhat clean in the process..
