Its been a wet and rather miserable winter in New Zealand this year.  However there are some things that work really well to lift everyone spirits on these cold grey days.

One that I really like is this recipe for Graham’s thick vegetable soup I now make it in a slow cooker and it lasts a few days unless I freeze some.  It’s great to come home to after a day out – for a quick filling meal accompanied by some crusty bread picked up for the bakery or supermarket on the way home.

While the soup is heating I quickly make a self-saucing chocolate pudding so it cooks while we’re eating our bowls of soup.  Its even quicker if you make the microwaved version that will be cooked before you’ve cleared away the soup bowls.

A very quick and easy winter meal that the whole family will enjoy (Except perhaps those who still object to vegetables in any form.  Maybe they will have a bowl of plain pasta instead).
