    Good Morning :hello:

    Bits and bobs of admin to do today, and some further sorting and shuffling *stuff* about.

    I need a couple of things from up the high street, so we'll go and stretch our legs up there in a bit.

    Tea this evening is Spicy sweet potato & butternut squash soup, which is orginially from the c0vent gard3n s0up co recipe book. The book long since went to a chazzer, but this is one of the few recipes that I kept. The sweet potatoes are from HB (cheaper than mrAl :j), the BNS was from mrL, I have a spare 25p tin of chickpeas kicking about, doing nowt (and plenty of dried chickpeas in the cupboard if it came to it), so I figured this was the soup to make.

    Right, best get to it and make a start.

    Ta for popping in. Appreciated.

    Does the flavour of the chickpeas come through? I'm trying to up my veg intake via soup but I'm not a big fan of chickpeas.

    Not really INOD - I tend to blitz my version anyway, and the lime and spice seem to dominate - which is OK by me :D

    Thank you.

    It's just so bl00dy unfair. They fought so hard for so long. They won twice, but at the third time of knocking, I don't think they had anything left to call upon.

    There are children who've lost a mother, a husband has lost his wife, a family that has lost it's shining light.

    Bl00dy unfair.
