hand held blender ceased to work. Despite recently buying a high speed blender, I miss the little attachment for quick small jobs.

E's birthday he was given some chocolates that have lasted surprisingly for a couple of weeks. He also received a jar or WispaGold caramel hot chocolate that we all love. It is from Treats From Home that imports British groceries for ex-pats. So I am not sure it will be a regular in our house. Maybe just as well. In the photo is also a Hawaiian girl door stop and some 3D glasses for a fancy birthday card.
Red Lentil and Celery Soup. It is a crazy world where a full bunch of celery was cheaper than a half bunch in clingwrap. I love having some celery about but a bunch always seems a lot to use.

It may have been my substitution of parsnips for some of the carrots as I could taste them a bit too much. I might try it again some time.
here. So cheap and so easy. I have always loved mung bean sprouts. They are so good in a salad sandwich or scattered over a salad.
And now that I have finally sprouted mung beans, it seems I might one day do other things I always hoped I would. Onwards and upwards.
