spicy parsnip soup(15 Posts)
my auntie gave me a pot of this yesterday and im not joking, i nearly died it was so gorgeous
spicy parsnip soup
pint water + 2 beef stock cubes
3 large parsnips
cream to swirl
she is rubbish at giving recipes away so i was twisting her arm at the time, hence the lack of details, but you get the gist
forgot to say, its important to 'whizz' it afterwards, its supposed to be a smooth soup
sounds like a lot of stock cubes NP. Are you sure she used two?
hmmm i thought so too but she said yes. she does that with all her soups. she makes them up, so you could make changes to suit
i keep looking at the recipe thinking ive missed something out...
maybe its more than a pint. im going to have to call her later
lol! I don't know. the proportion to the amount of parsnips sounds right, but you scots do take a lot more salt that us sasernachs don't you?
On a different topic, why don't you like west lothian? Linlithgow is beautiful!
when we were looking at moving out of edin we looked at west lothian but not as far as linlithgow, which i have heard is lovely
we looked at livingston which i wasnt keen on and east calder
we ended up coming to fife
oops didnt mean to offend
hope you like the soup! i do like my salt...
didn't offend. I'm very biased about linlithgow as I always want to move there when I visit best friend. And it's only 20 minutes out of waverley. love it!
next time I'm up for a few days, I'll cat you to see if you'd like to meet up for a coffee in jenners (BF takes very little time off when I come over and so I have to amuse myself!)
ooh i love jenners
have you been to the new harvey nichols in edinburgh?
oatcake, have you been to the dr yet?
no. am off to birmingham for a couple of days tomorrow. will be visiting a friend and her new baby on thursday (she's getting induced tonight, fingers crossed) and on friday, handing essays into uni before going out for lunch with uni girls.
there's always something to prevent me, but I'm pretty high this week which has put the issue to the back of my mind (which really should be the best time to go to the docs...)
Where's the harvey nicks? I was there in august (in the pouring rain...)and don't remember it being around then...
maybe keeping yourself busy is a good idea.
harvey nicks is in st andrew square, east end of town, round the corner from jenners. the coffee shop bit is posh, as you can imagine, bit jenners has better cakes.
look after yourself, enjoy the lunch. i didnt know you were at uni, what are you studying?
chin up and all that xxx
ok, well it has to be jenners for cakes then eh? will probably be upfor a long weekend early summer as friend is coming down here next week.
studying midwifery. extremely stressful (another cause of some depressing days!) This week's a study week which is probably why I'm so high - cos I'm not working!
how's things with you? apart from seeing your aunty!
dh chucked me out with the car keys and packed me off to friends house for the weekend. after several bottles of wine at 3 am i gushed everything out. she was shocked and said i was good at hiding it. she was furious too that i hadnt told her, she has her own probs but she is coming up with lots of fantastic supportive offers of help, even just to chat (she lives a wee bit away)
came home and dh and the dd's had had a great weekend too. he is such a lovely dh
my friend and i went on a house hunting afternoon too and we had such a laugh, she is going to be my go-between for houses up there, so its pretty much decided between me and dh that we are going home
sorry to bore you
jenners for cake it is then, i look forward to it
im a nurse, btw, if you need someone to moan to about coursework or nhs working in general, shitty ward sisters etc then im your man xxx
OMG! excellent! sorry, but the majority of HCP are just power hungry 'female dogs'! I've worked for 16 years before starting training and have never come across such rudeness during my last 18 months!
as for packing you off to your friends, dh is a gem. truly the right decision and I'm so glad you've got things off your chest. My friends really are golden. They're there when you want them, but they do have to know what's going on. After my mum died in the summer they were calling so often that I had to tell them to stop as I hadn't at that point started grieving. Since then, they've been there for me whenever I've needed them!
Thank heavens for friends eh? got to go, just got ds back from nursery and he's being a bit demanding. Off to brum tomorrow so will catch up on thursday morning?
