Soothing Soupa...

I got home from the hospital yesterday and Ive been eating slush for two days now.

My mouth is doing quite well. Im not as bad as I thought Id be and I havnt taken my pain killers today as Ive got to look after my little Neo - dont want to zonk out and have him run the house down!

So I made some yummy vegetable soup with rice and chicken for lunch today, it doesnt look too appealing but tastes delicious! Even Neo thought so! simple, easy and full of goodness!

I found the recipe in one of my Tessa Kiros cookbooks - I have all 3 of her books - Twelve, Falling Cloudberries and Apples for Jam. They are beautiful books and I love pouring through them for inspiration - great recipes, beautiful pictures, little notes and memories of Tessa's childhood. Her passion for food and family is infectious.
Here are some pics of Tessa cooking at home in Tuscany. What a gorgeous house huh?! this was from an interview in 'Inside Out' magazine (Dec 06)

    I'm tagging you for a meme:
    Give the meaning of your kids’ names, and write about what or how or why you gave the name to your kids. Tag five people to play along and leave a comment at their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
