Day 5, Monday: Write a ‘How to’ post teaching everyone … well, how to do something! Cooking, crafting, or anything else that takes your fancy.
My father in law was keen to learn how to make vegetable soup. I will tell you what I told him.
“Vegetable soup is the easiest thing to make!
Soak some pearl barley (a few hours ahead)
Chop an onion and brown it with some garlic
Chop up ALL the vegetables
Add stock (beef/chicken/vegetable)
Add ALL of the vegetables to the pot
Add water if needed
Chuck in pearl barley
Season with salt & pepper.
Cook until vegetables look nice and soupish.”
That concludes the teaching portion of today's blogging.
