It snowed all day yesterday. Yes, I know it's the middle of April! It was snowing when I woke up in the morning and still snowing when I went to bed. When I got up this morning, it was still snowing! It has stopped now but it's still a grey cold kind of day.
We didn't leave the house yesterday. Lloyd has been sick for a few days and doesn't have much of an appetite so I decided to make a pot of chicken noodle soup for dinner. I went on Pinterest and found a slow cooker version of the soup so put it on early in the day and the house smelled like soup cooking all day - lovely. It was a super easy recipe and super good, so I'll be sure to make it again.
It's a lovely thick soup. I made it in my 4 L inset of my slow cooker and there's plenty left for the two of us to have for dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow. Or I could freeze some of it for later.
To go with it to finish off the meal, I went to Pinterest again and found a biscuit recipe which was a delicious accompanient to the soup, served warm with butter melting on them. (I know my British friends call cookies biscuits, but this is probably what they refer to as scones.)
We ventured out today for an ice cream treat and are now snug and warm in our house once again. Hopefully spring will be here to stay in a few days.
