Today was the first proper Autumn day after recent days of sunshine and quite balmy weather. It was cool, it was misty and there were fallen leaves and conkers everywhere ! I couldn't resist gathering a little collection to take some bright jolly pictures of.
We've had a super productive day today. We went into town to get some meat and bones from the butcher, then did our main food shop, got home and cleaned upstairs whilst doing two loads of laundry including all the bed linen, walked the dogs, then made a huge batch of tomato soup ! And it's not even teatime.
I have to share this with you but vegetarians and vegans please look away now !
We always buy bones from the butcher for our girls but look how much meat is left on these ones ! So lovely hubby boiled a few of them up to make a rich stock for our stews etc. This is another great source of free food.
To get away from the ugliness of seeing animal carcases, here is a picture of my tomato soup which is just D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S, even if I do say so myself ;) And of course it's gluten-free, yeast-free and dairy-free ...
I shall spend the remainder of the afternoon curled up on the sofa with the girls in front of the fire. I have a glass of Merlot on the side and my latest issues of Country Living and Country Homes & Interiors magazines. What could be better ?
I hope you're all having a great weekend.
