Carrot & Ginger Soup

Soup, Salmon and Cheesy Comestibles

More soup. Carrot and Lentil today, plus a few bits of parsnip, sweet potato and chickpea that were hanging about after being surplus to to other recipes. My favourite soups all seem to be orange.

In the evening we had salmon with stir-fried veg. I am not fond of fish, and the oily fish I am supposed to eat for health reasons is amongst the worst of the fish, well, except for rock salmon, hake, basa, sardines and kippers. And eels and pike. Actually, it’s not too bad when you think about it . . . Tuna is no longer an oily fish, according to the NHS, though it is still listed on other sites. Typical that the only palatable oily fish has been removed.

I have never particularly liked fish with bones in, like sardines and kippers, and after the incident with the fishbone in my school dinner I have always tried to avoid them.

The Winter Menu starts tomorrow, with multi-vegetable corned beef hash. This year I will not be slathering it in brown sauce as I am cutting down on pickles to reduce my salt and sugar intake. I have also ordered cheese footballs with the TESCO shopping on Saturday.  It’s more expensive and less efficient than ASDA but there are some things I specifically want from them.

Christmas cannot proceed without cheese footballs,, and once they are ordered Christmas has officially started. It’s a bit early, but they are in, and I don’t want to risk the smooth running of Christmas.

        I believe this was the case. It is another reason for trying to eat fish. Of course, in the “old days” the church declared puffins, coypu and beaver to be “fish” for the purposes of Lent.

      Ugh – one time in college I bought cheap tuna and it had bones in it. It put me off tuna for the longest time. ***shivers***. Fish is sketchy enough – do not let it have bones.

    The soup looks good! I love sardines. We eat plenty of them, being cheap and nutritious. 🙂

    What is a cheese football? The images I looked up online are varying concoctions in the shape of an American football that do not look anything like Christmas to me.
