Abundant Cottage Adventures Monday 27th April 2020

Another beautiful Autumn day was enjoyed by our family.  Here's what we got up to -

*  Darren and I enjoyed a toasted hot cross bun with a cuppa out on the deck.

*  I dug up a couple of bushes that had grown too big for the garden space they were in.  I transplanted them to a better spot.

*  Pruned one of the feijoa trees.  I was surprised to find about 10 feijoas on the ground underneath.

*  Chunky chicken and vegetable soup with crusty bread was on the menu for dinner.

Soup for dinner.

Have you started making soup since the weather has become milder ?



  1. Hello!
    We have a chicken about once a week and I always make stock from the carcass. This makes two medium sized jars of stock so enough soup for four days for two of us. Apart from vegetables I add turmeric, ginger and often garlic to increase immunity. Sometimes I add pasta.I pretty up the bowls with herbs on top as I have so many in the garden. I really enjoy the change in seasons and mark autumn by making soup and using the slow cooking for warming dinners.
    Baby Luka is adorable!

  2. Hi Wendy,i made your soup on the weekend it's really nice and your anzac biscuit recipe Is the best.

  3. I cant wait to make soup again, that looks yummo.

  4. I will be making soup tomorrow. We have had a series of beautiful days but today we were blessed with some rain.

  5. I love soup, but my husband isn't a fan. We are also in California, where the weather is trending towards summer, so it's not soup season here. Your soup looks fabulous!

  6. Soup and bread always makes a lovely meal. I need to make some more split-pea soup soon as we've been enjoying it for dinner often and I don't have any left in the freezer. Meg:)
