Creamy Chicken Soup


I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend. We've been doing some DIY in our new house in readiness for the arrival of my Sis in Law and niece from New Zealand on Wednesday. We managed to get an almost new double bed on freecycle last week so I'm rather pleased with that. Tomorrow after Church we are off to the car boot to see if we can find some bed side tables for one of the spare bedrooms and curtains! The kids and I love going to to car boots but the hubby refuses - is it a man thing?....he can stay home and do some more DIY!

We had this creamy chicken soup for lunch today and it was a hit with everyone. I used the stock from a chicken I cooked in the slow cooker to make this but you could always pick up some fresh chicken stock from the supermarket if you didn't have any.

Perfect with crusty bread and a cheeky glass of vino.

A busy one this week with Lowen's 7th birthday, Easter weekend and lots of juggling childcare/work. Lowen requested Roast Chicken for her birthday tea which she wants with mashed potato and Fish and Chips for her birthday sleepover on Friday.

I'm looking forward to the Beef Cobbler on Easter Sunday which I'm going to serve with purple sprouting broccoli from my Mother in Laws allotment along with some carrots and peas.

Have a good week. I currently have some Banana Crumble Bars in the oven which are smelling very good indeed - will post the recipe soon.
