I must say that I'm loving the new school year. Teen Boy is starting his HSC (Higher School Cert) and Little One is no longer so little as she's just started Year 7. So why am I loving it? Well, they're so into their homework that I have a whole load of free time to spend rattling the pans in the kitchen. Yesterday was no exception and from out of the oven came Nigella's Store cupboard Chocolate cake, Maria's Mincemeat wedges (http://thegoddesskitchen.blogspot.com/), Sal's Impossible Quiche (see below!) and from the stove top, a rather lovely cupboard soup plus the remaining green beans from the garden which got many accolades at lunch. The family have begged me not to forget this one so I'm putting it here for posterity!
Saturday Cupboard Soup
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tin creamed corn
1 tin canellini beans, drained
A handful of green beans, chopped
1 chicken stock cube
1 vegetable stock cube
five spice powder
Fry the onion in a little oil until translucent. Add the tin of creamed corn and 1 tins worth of water. Crumble in the stock cubes and add the green beans. Then add the canellini beans and a sprinkle of five spice powder. Bring to the boil and simmer until the green beans are tender. Adjust the seasoning and serve!
I'm sorry but there are no photos, the homework included a science project on digital cameras. However, here's one I did earlier!! My find in the sands at Uluru!
