Made this for lunch today Tomato and Borlotti Bean soup, it was delicious and very economical.I'm always buying different beans and pulses and then I'm not sure what to do with them so this is a great recipe for using them up.I doubled the amout so we've got plenty of warming soup for the weekend!
I really need to do a shop as we've run out of lots of things,you know one of those days when you're rootling around in your cupboards because there's not much of anything left!Not even even cheese and bread, I can't bear to think about going supermarket shopping in the snow, I'll wait until tomorrow I think!
However I do have enough ingredients to make a lemon drizzle cake, I made one last week and it was lovely, a Tana Ramsay recipe, I added a bit more lemon as we like it very lemony!
Might have a naughty hot chocolate later too, well it's just sooo cold and snowy!

Thank you for all you sweet comments on my last post,I really appreciated them, I thought you might have forgotten me it had been so long!
Have a lovely cozy weekend!

My Poor Neglected Blog

Oh dear, it has been soooo long since my last post, I REALLY did keep meaning to, but then life and Pinterest (an  addiction) got in the way!
But honestly.... 2011 was a strange old year, and although I had some lovely happy times, my daughters graduation, our 25th wedding anniversary, trip to Dublin and a lovely walking week in Derbyshire. I felt like I never properly got to grips with 2011!It felt like there were lots of downs too, in fact I can't bear to watch the news anymore with all the awful things going on in the world
The recession has hit my little business somewhat too,people didn't have as many pennies to spend, so I spent quite a bit of time working on that.
However I am determined to make the most of 2012 and made a good start with decluttering and organizing in January.
Now in Feb I've been designing some new makes for my Etsy shop I also need to make a start on some re-decorating! I shall show you soon!
I'm looking forward to catching up with you all

Love Rachel x
