This sounds really good!!

That sounds (and looks) absolutely scrummy! I will certainly give it a try. I went to a dinner some time ago and several of us had soup which we all thought was delicious and that had curry in so I will definitely keep it in :)

That looks delicious, gone to favourites, my daughter in law will love this one, she loves carrots and ginger.

You must try it San / Joanella , when you have time ,
It is good Meanie / Gee , I wasn't sure about the curry but it gave it that something extra , we agreed it wouldn't have been so tasty without it ,

Sounds yummy, putting on favourites too so I can give it a go:-)
I've been making leek soup, have a glut of them on the allotment.

I'm appalling Amy - I'm already thinking about substituting the curry powder with red curry paste, and I haven'y even made it yet!
Is that bad?

Good luck Cinderella ! I've been doing the leek soup Kathy I'm afraid the leeks we have left in the garden are all a bit on the skinny side so I was looking for something else to fil the gap , this is delicious ....
Thats not bad Meanie , I'm sure that will work just as well , let me know when you have tried it , if you like it I will try it to ......

Hope mine are ok haven't been down to allotment for over a week the snows too deep, suppose they'll be well insulated.

I hope your leeks are keeping well Kathy , the snow does tend to keep them warm , leeks are such a good standby in the winter we all like leeks in a white sauce .. ....

Have never thought of using curry powder before, usually cumin or coriander. just the thing for this weekend. many thanks, Amy. :-))

10 Dec, 2010

 

I bet it is we need something warm inside us this weather :)

10 Dec, 2010

 

Was as low as -14 recently, Amy, but a very warm +5 today, so all that snow is beginnng to crash down from rooftops. Like many people, all my guttering has come down with it. Will be making this soup tomorrow. :-))

I heard on the news about the difference in your temperatures David , what a nuisance about your gutters , can you replace them or will you have to call someone in at your expense ? I hope this doesn't mean the next thing to come will be flooding.. My hubby is over in Wales he said there's still a lot of snow on the Brecon Beacons ....

10 Dec, 2010

 

Flooding beginning to happen, Amy, but managed to get the car all the way home tonight, for the first time in 2 weeks. Have had to leave it almost a mile from the house, then walk through treacherous side streets. And, by Monday, the temp is to drop again, with new snowfalls forecast by Monday :-((

Am still seeing crashes, with police cars and ambulances in attendance, several times on drive to and from work.

I cannot remember ever seeing "avalanches" from rooftops in my life. It is, actually, quite exciting! You hear a very audible "crack" a split second before the, up-to 1 foot deep, iced snow on a roof comes crashing down. Just enough time to leap out into the road or dive into a shop doorway. And I worried about the "killer" icicles, up to 3 ft long, some of them, hanging from my, erstwhile, gutters!!! Path from gate to door now blocked with massive ice cubes, LOL!!!!

Gutters and pipes are to be replaced, not at my expense, within the next week, weather permitting. Best bit was to come home tonight an feel the heat!!! Was without heat and hot water for the past week, but has now been restored. I'm "in Heaven"!!! :-)))))

Wishing OH a safe trip home! :-))))

Oh My Goodness David , you see these things on TV but you don't realise just how much it effects each and every individual , i'm pleased that at least you have heat and hot water , it makes me appreciate that we had a wood burner installed a couple of years ago at least we would be warm .....
I imagine it would be exciting to see and hear and an Avalanch ( from a distance ) when they come down from a roof there must be a huge weight involved , keep clear and be careful .. You could save some of those giant ice cubes for a very large Sloe Gin at Christmas ...LOL....
Thanks for the safe wishes for my Hubby he should be leaving Dyfed in Wales this morning his sisters funeral was yesterday ... driving isn't much fun these days ...:o(
