We did get a break mid Saturday morning when our friends Peter and Maggie dropped in for coffee. They live in Wales so we don't get to see them too often, so that was a nice hour!
And on top of that, although we were working really hard all day Saturday I didn't have to cook an evening meal as we had been invited to our friend's Gillian and Andy for a meal. We hadn't seen them for about 6 months, so that was a lovely way to spend Saturday evening and Gillian produced a wonderful meal for us.
Talking of food, I used my soup maker again this weekend. It has seemed like soup weather recently and on Friday I made up my own recipe of parsnip, carrot and potato soup which was really nice. Today I took a bag of mixed vegetables for soup from Aldi and popped them in the soup maker. I think you were really supposed to use them to make a chunky soup, but I prefer my soups smooth so chose that option. The result was delicious, but a rather evil green colour!
Me on Monday was originally Sian's idea, so do hop on over to her blog to see what she has been up to this weekend!
