    I'm aiming for both, if arty has time to update her excellent index. If not, then the usual place if that's not tricky for people?

    I am liking the pea soup :D
    I followed Lesley's recipe...
    Although, I didn't have any mint :(
    I mixed the flour with a wee touch of water, instead of milk, then added in.
    I would normally add a potato to thicken a soup, so this was new to me :o... but it was ok...as it thickened quite quickly.
    I had a wee taste, and after adding s+p, I decided that it DID need a wee bit of milk.
    I added 50ml's at a time.... by the time I got to 150ml's, I had a consistancy and taste that I liked.

    When I make this soup again, I will deffo try it with mint.... as I think a little mint flavour in the background would be a lovely variation on it.

    Hope this helps :D
