It's national soup day today!

If you feel like going out, take a look at all of our amazing Winter specials!

26 May 2011

There’s something about Winter that just makes me get all homey and Martha Stewart-ish. I feel like donning a frilly apron, making stock, chopping butternuts… well, let’s not go too far, I can’t do butternut skin.

What I love most is, staying in, cuddling up to a warm fire with extra woolly socks on and inhaling bowls and bowls of steaming soup.

I make huge pots of the stuff so the windows steam up and the whole house smells like roasted tomatoes and garlic or anything with chorizo.

There’s even a whole diet for soup. The soup and wine diet – have you ever? That’s so my diet of choice, I shall drink my dinner, get tiddled and my cozzie will fit in Spring, how very peachy.

There are so many wonderful flavours and really, you could basically make anything, blend it (or not) and eat it out of a cup. Have a look at our top 10 soups of the moment and then make some chocolate soup for dessert.

Warm yourselves up from the inside people.

Love and extra large bowls,
