Bestest Easiest Vegie Soup for a Miserable Day
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 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
Joseph meanwhile, did the real one, twice...he's mad
So we lined up for the pirate ship
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.
