I’m sitting here admiring the view from the dining table at my sister’s farm in Healesville Victoria. The trees are bare and masses of snowdrops and daffodils brighten up the view, a hint of the approaching spring. It’s cold outside, if you live in Victoria you would know what I’m talking about. I should be outside weeding the garden beds and planting seed trays of summer vegetables so they will be ready to go into the ground when the weather gets warmer, but I just can’t bear the thought of going out there, perhaps on the weekend when I’ll have some helpers. Today I have opted for plan ‘B’ which means cook, after all it’s much warmer by the stove. Tuscan kale & bean soup is now on the menu for tonight and I can’t wait! Here’s a link to the recipe if you want to try making it yourself.
