    Bestest Easiest Vegie Soup for a Miserable Day

    This has to be the most miserable day of the Winter so far.
    Second day of the school holidays, thank God we did the Amusement Park yesterday.
    So I had to make soup for lunch

    This is so easy and quick and Sophia, Dale and I have wolfed down a couple of bowls each

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 onion sliced
    2 stalks celery sliced
    8 medium carrots sliced
    1/4 cabbage chopped
    Vegeta 1 tablespoon
    1 teaspoon chili flakes

    Heat olive oil in a soup pot
    Add onions
    Add celery and carrots
    Season with Vegeta (you can use Salt and Pepper but I love Vegeta)
    Stir and saute for another few minutes
    Add cabbage and chili flakes
    Cover with water and bring to boil
    Simmer till vege are tender (about 30 minutes)

    Put most of the vege into a blender with some extra water
    Leave some behind for texture
    Back into pot
    Bring back to boil

    I served it with Garlic Pita Bread
    Now we are warm and toasty
    Meanwhile here is our fun from yesterday

    A Cousins Outing. Claudia is up from Christchurch.
    Everyone wanted a trip to Rainbow's End
     And would you believe it is cheaper to take me, than nearly 5 year old Cleo
    Katie and Cleo in the front carriage of The Gold Rush
    The Invader, Katie was brave enough to do this, Sophia and I Sat it out. Cleo not tall enough
    But, I did do the CorkScrew Roller Coaster for the First and Last time
    The some fun rides for Miss Cleo
    She had to do the Free Fall twice.

    Joseph meanwhile, did the real one, twice...he's mad

    So we lined up for the pirate ship
    It was fun but once was enough for me

    The kids wanted to go again, so Katie was talked into that as Miss Cleo wanted to go again as well.. She wasn't happy
    She might look it, but she wasn't

    Katie and Joseph went off to do the Power Surge, the worst ride at the Park.
    Meanwhile, we did the Gold Rush again

    Then a final Log Flume

    Dodgems, Ice creams then home.
    A Great day.
