You never know what you're going to find on the Aga, yesterday for instance it was this weeks huge pan of homemade soup.
It was just cobbled together from pickings and trimmings from the polytunnel and net tunnel with an added onion or two and a couple of slices of celery from the fridge salad drawer. I even found a marrow that I didn't know was still left in the net tunnel when I was having a tidy up of one of the beds. I didn't manage to fit it all in the pan so half of the chunks were popped into the freezer for next weeks pan of soup.
I've recently started adding some beetroot to most of my soups, it gives the whole pot this wonderful deep reddish colour.
Of course the Aga is not just a giant soup maker ....
... this morning it looks like this!!
I think Ginger brought a mouse in over night, and the kitchen and conservatory bore the tale of a frantic mad chase of said mouse by a cat and a Jack Russell. My wellies were knocked over and this one had obviously been used as a refuge, although why it was soaking wet inside I'll never know ... sometimes it's best not to dwell on these things.
Once it's dried out I'll have to stick the lining back to the rubber and put the whole incident out of my mind.
