A Soupcon Of Soup!!!

I've just spent rather a long time chopping up veg for the soup that hubby has requested to have with his new favourite cornbread. 
I can see me getting sick of cornbread quite quickly.
So now there is a lovely huge pan of soup simmering on the hob some for us which we like to eat chunky and some which I shall turn into magical vegetable soup with no vegetables in it for Ruby.......nothing actually magical about it at all.....I just give it a whizz with the stick blender until you can't identify any of the veg and she will eat I thought she might enjoy some while she has this cold.

Hubby has been for his pre-op this morning and has come home with the biggest pile of paper I have ever seen. It will be left to me to go through it I expect as he hasn't the patience.
We now know that he will be in hospital for three to five days but will only be discharged if he can perform his bodily functions easily and get about by himself and he will be off work for up to three months. He won't know what to do with himself as he won't be allowed to drive or lift or anything much.
He doesn't read apart from the papers so I expect lots of time will be spent sleeping and watching films or tv and most of my time will be taken up with making sure he eats and drinks properly and gets his excercise. I will also be taking on the jobs he does such as the dog walking, bin emptying and putting out the bins on a Friday, stick chopping and fire if I miss a blog post or two you will know why.

Right I had best go and make a couple of pans of this cornbread. I'm making extra today so that I can take some for Ruby to have with her soup too.

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. I have Slow Cooker Poor Man's Stew cooking away. I think I will copy you and make some corn muffins to go with it. I cheat and use a Jiffy mic which is dead easy!

    Glad you now know what to expect with hubby and his op - will continue to pray for a speedy recovery and strength for you. A jixsaw puzzle may help to pass some of the time during recovery. Once he is strong enough I do hope you get some fine days where you can get outside for short walks.

    Hope Ruby is feeling better - children bounce back quickly.


  2. Jigsaws, crosswords, puzzle books may help. I make a lot of soup as it is something my Dad can manage when he is not too good. The cornbread sounds good, I would love it if you would share the recipe. I do the same for Wilbur who won't east some veg. LOL!

  3. I feel we are even more kindred spirits than normal! I have to empty the dehumidifier on the cellar!!!

  4. Had some lovely Leek and Potato soup last night. Yum. I must say I'm with Rudy - I like vegetable soup but would prefer minus the chunks lol.

  5. I hope it all goes well with him, I like my soup free of chunks


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
