Baby, it's cold outside

And according to the weather bureau, it's going to rain this afternoon in Brisbane too (typical, after I cleaned my car for the first time in 8 months).

Cold, rainy weather requires warm, scrumptious food and after today discovering the Shesaid website, I think it's going to be soup for dinner - chicken minestrone in fact!

Normally my man requires some kind of dead animal in his meal (must be a guy thing) so making soups for dinner can be tricky - pumpkin soup is one of my favourite's but it's way too healthy for him so I only ever eat it out of a can for lunch at the office. But minestrone is more than just a soup, it's a meal in itself!

The best minestrone I've ever had was of course made by my Mum - I'd pass on the recipe but she swears it was off the packet of San Remo rissoni from the supermarket (and yes, I've looked and looked for it but it seems San Remo packets are now 'sans' minestrone recipe, they do have some great ideas online though).

In the absence of a nice warm bowl of soup, get out to Barkins this weekend (or online) and grab yourself a cute knit or beanie. My pick of their latest items is the red knit beret $19.95, pea coat for just $49.95 and the blotch blouse, a steal at $39.95. A number of other items are on sale on their website so get a bargain quick sticks.
