Hey there foodie friends,
What’s cookin? 🙂 So here is a fact, did you know that “What’s cookin?” is considered to be Old Fashion English Slang? If you didn’t well now you do. you just learned something new today. 🙂 So, what are you cooking today? Soups, Stews, or are you baking? Cakes, Tarts, Pies, I am curious and I would love to hear what you are having for lunch and dinner.
Let’s see what have I been up to lately, well work of course and what else umm I have been watching Dark Food Photography tutorials. I haven’t actually taken any photos yet but I will give it a go in a few weeks.
The weather here has been somewhat awful. Fog and cold weather has been a bit harsh this past week. We haven’t had snow but it doesn’t snow often in the Netherlands. A memory came to mind while I was preparing this soup. The cold winters in NY, Snow, Sleet, Ice, were definitely harsh, and we were always bundled up like onions. Coming home from school and having that delicious bowl of soup mom had prepared for us to warm us up. And of course a nice cup of Camomille Tea.
One thing I really disliked wearing were those ridiculous Parka Jackets!! I never liked them and I still don’t. hahaha… I had to work hard to convinced my mom that I wanted a gorgeous Green Suede Afgan Coat that I saw in a window shop OMG!! To this day I still remember wearing that coat and loving it!!!. I think my friend Dominique from 3cstyle Fashion would know what I mean. If you don’t know who 3cstyle Fashion is pop over to her blog and check it out…:)
This recipe is for those who really love to eat Peas and Carrots. I have never really liked Peas; But lately, I don’t know what it is but I tend to add them into more and more recipes. A simple, colorful recipe with a few ingredients and a dynamic taste to it. I did add one garlic clove, and you know that I don’t like garlic, but I thought that maybe this might give it a nice sense to the soup. The first and I mean the first thing I did was throw out the garlic clove once the soup was ready. 🙂
Have a good one everyone!!
