I went to our little local market in the weekend and got all these lovely veg for $6.00. Not bad, I reckon. Then I had a bit of a browse around the stalls and found these soup dishes - not old or special, I just like the shape and the lemons on the rim. They were only a dollar each so I bought them too.
Naturally with soup plates and soup vegs I had to make soup, so I transformed most of the above assortment plus leeks and silverbeet from the garden into a huge pot of soup. That's lunch sorted for the week.
I know it looks awful - that's the beetroot giving it that sinister colour - but it tasted GREAT.
