the first week of 2012 – back to soup, lentil & bacon to start.

A little reminder of last winter.

We polished last week off with a lunch trip out and chomped our way through a main course & desert. All such lovely, properly cooked food at a localish restaurant, Y Polyn. It’s so difficult to find places that cook everything themselves.

Thumbs up for Y Polyn and a fantastic chance to sit back and let someone else do the hard work.

Now it’s back to reality, the bathroom scales & expanding waist bands. Christmas is over & another year has begun.

Soup seems to be the thing to get us back on track. A classic lentil & bacon soup today. I checked around and the recipe can be found on many web sites

This one seems good. I just add a bit of garlic and chop up couple of storks of celery to throw into the pot. I’ve also added a teaspoon of sweet paprika and I haven’t got any parsley available so that’s been left out. The main thing is to watch the salt you add as the bacon usually gives up enough to flavour the entire dish.

As there is only 2 of us living in Glanbrydan Towers the soup will last for 2 days or we usually freeze half.

Happy new year everyone
