Annes Kitchen is moving!!

Am finally very pleased to have paid deposit and now me and mr annes kitchen are moving into a bigger property complete with SEPERATE and BIG kitchen and DOUBLE oven!!! Gosh I cant wait!! Still renting but better than current open - plan kitchen!!

Has been very sporadic my recent posting for which I do apologise, has been mental of late and doesnt seem to be settling!! Have to move out in just 3 weeks and then a week after moving in to new place I am finally off to see my beloved Take That!!!!!!!! Not quite foodie related but I would like to eat Gary Barlow alive so maybe that counts? ;-) (EDIT: Mr Barlow did infact look good enough to eat (at all three concerts....!!)

The next three weeks will involve clearing the kitchen cupboards out so am sure will result in lots of new foodie experiments!!

Love to all

Red Lentil, Celery and Carrot Soup

**Recipe revised 20/11/07** (Is now perfect!)
Whilst the title may not sound that great this was a surprisingly good soup made this week! Even carrot hater OH really enjoyed it!!

25 Minutes

1.5 pints veg stock (Use 1 Kallo Veggie bouilon cube and 1/2 a kallo chicken bouilon cube)
1 mug red lentils (about 10 heaped dessert spoons, add more if using less veg)
1 large Onion
2 cloves garlic
3-4 Sticks celery roughly chopped (including base and greenery)
2 medium carrots cubed
S&P to taste (you prob wont need any salt if using the cubes!)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsbp butter

1) Heat on a medium heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan, add roughly chopped onions and simmer for 3-4 minutes, add celery and carrot, simmer for another 3-4 minutes, add garlic and lentils, stir in well and cover with stock

2) Cook for 20-25 minutes and blitz like a madwoman (or man!)

Really good reheated as well!

*I revised this recipe last night and really think this is the bees knees! Is golden and warming and reheated perfectly for my lunch*

These freezes very well.
