And what will the robin do then, poor thing?
Well he wasn’t sitting in a barn “hiding his head under his wing”…
He was taking his life in his hands, pecking round under THWWN’s feet. And I think it’s fair to say he’s been keeping well fed, fat little bugger 🙂
But it’s true that whichever wind it was; north, east, southbysouthwestrecurring – it hath indeed blown and it hath snowed big time. My phone’s messing about so no pictures from today but it was along these lines:
We’d actually been very lucky compared to the rest of the country not to get more than a dusting before Friday (much more today) but it’s been freezing, -7C in the mornings is not fun:
I was at home most of today, as there was no riding or driving anywhere to be done – so my house is cleaner than it ever has been and even my fridge is clean. Be impressed.
It’s just so cold though, which is where this sort of thing comes in:
I was lucky enough to be sent some of Yorkshire Provender‘s gluten-free soup to try and I gave it my full attention.
Apart from anything else, the pots look so tempting – and the soup itself doesn’t look too bad either:
That was the vegetable and ham, which I shared with my mum, and it went down a treat. It tasted lovely but my personal preference is for thick, creamy soup, which is where the pea and spinach was a real winner.
I have to say the beetroot wasn’t my favourite thing ever, but then I’ve mentioned the love-hate (mainly hate) relationship beetroot and I have and actually, considering that, it wasn’t too bad! And as for the tomato and red pepper with Wensleydale, I think an mmmmmm sums it up… On that note, can anyone else not say Wensleydale without using a Wallace and Gromit voice? Or is that just me…?
Soup’s always good in weather like this and I think I’m going to have to buy some more as this looks like it’s staying around for a while! Have you got much snow? And have you tried the Yorkshire Provender soups?
