The biggest thing I am hearing on the playground is food food and more food. Whether its what the kids are or are not eating in their lunch or how to stay on top of the nighttime schedule and not fall into the trap of freezer food and junk on the go.

Enter a magical word called SOUP! Yes I know you are snoring but WAKE UP and smell the delicious aroma its everywhere and its anytime!!!!

Two nights ago I decided to try out a classic restaurant showcase on Mark. You know when you get a warm bowl served with something yummy in the bottom and then a jug of delicious soup poured over the top. Well can I just say this is my new favourite way to eat during the fall nights on the go, it was simply and ‘Literally’ delicious!! A curried roasted red pepper and carrot puree poured over blackened chicken with coconut ginger and lime. I know you want this recipe….. well its coming soon so check back follow the blog and try that along with….

So I pose the question????? when is it ok to eat soup???? frankly in my mad world anytime. As I was making dinner last night, my eye caught a pile of fresh vine ripes on the corner of the counter. With some garlic  just roasted out of the oven it took maybe 10 minutes to pull off a rich jar of home comfort and tick another future meal off the list. Well this morning I had an ‘ah ha’ moment, why can’t you have soup for breakfast and this is what happened.
