Lentil, Bacon & Squash Soup

October 10th, 2016

One of my favourite things to make when the weather gets cooler is large batches of hearty soup.

My goodness, how time flies – it’s already Thursday and if you’re in school, your first week is almost over! For me, that means the friendly school crossing guard is back near my house in the morning and afternoon with his whistle and ‘STOP’ sign, and children pass to and fro in their school uniforms, […]
