Weekends are cooking groundhog days to me

Weekends are so deja vu, it's like groundhog weekends.

This is what I normally do with some deviations to the schedule. This is what I usually cook on the weekends. Soup or spag bol. I need meals for the kids during the week for days they go to the Nun's and when you need go to meals in the freezer/fridge after work.

I normally cook this soup as there is a lot of chopping and it is the only way that they will eat vegetables. It is a chicken and vegetable soup ... mmmm nommy.

What you need for this soup is 2 carrots, a large or 2 small zucchinis, 2/3 stalks of celery, 1 leek, garlic minced.

Brown your leek and garlic, dice carrots, zucchini and celery and chuck that in too. Add in your dry soup mix (washed and drained) ... Don't ask me how much! I use chicken drumsticks for this and would need about 3 or 4. Add in 7 cups of chicken stock and 1 cup of water. Simmer for a few hours.

Take chicken drumsticks out and pull off the meat. Discard any skin or "funny" bits. And add the meat back to the soup.


  1. yum!! except for the chicken funny bits haha i'm a total fussy meat eater it grosses me out if it looks funky!!! but otherwise yum!! i have the same red casserole pot. they're so effing good!! xx

    1. That's the problem with chicken bits! They always look funny when boiled and not fried to golden goodness. I think it was also the lighting as well. Wahhh cries.
