It is definitely soup season! The temperature has finally started to drop and I am keeping my fingers crossed that we are going to be able to continue to keep our house warm using only our wood burner. We haven’t turned on the central heating in our new cottage since we moved in October and have relied on using the fire to warm us up so I am determined to keep it up for the next couple of months.
My plan is to make sure we are all bundled up in our jumpers, socks and slippers everyday so that we can make do with just the fire. And when that doesn’t work anymore? Well, I’ll just drive over to my mamas house! 😉

Soup is the perfect meal on a cold day. It is quick to make, packed full of goodness and pretty inexpensive too which is a bonus! This soup is a delicious change from the norm and uses some great seasonal produce. I had ‘ready to use’ chestnuts but feel free to cook and peel your own – it would probably work out cheaper.
