My salad days...

I've been trying to up my intake of vegetables and have found the easiest way to do this is to have more salads and soups.  For lunch today I made a huge salad and had it with a pitta bread and hoummous - delicious!  I liked it so much I took a picture of it - well the salad part anyway.




I was super-efficient this morning and managed to chargrill a red pepper, saute it with onion, butternut squash, sweet potato, broccoli, and some smoked paprika, then throw it in the slow cooker with some tinned tomatoes so I have some yummy soup for tea (I've just added a tin of chickpeas as well).

On the cat side of things, Pod is less itchy, Charlie has lost his collar, Pepper vomited, and Posky is inserting himself into blogs.


Book-wise, against my better judgment I have bought The Winter Ghosts in hardback from a charity shop.  I keep hoping Kate Mosse is going to be a better writer than she's proved to be so far (endings are really not her thing...), so we shall see.

I didn't manage to finish 'The Winter Ghosts' at least I managed to get to the end of the other two!

It's not salad weather here today - cold, wet and windy. Hope it's better where you are.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you think about The Winter Ghosts.

We're getting into soup weather. Since we have tons of tomatoes, I think it's a good day to make chilli.
