Our lives are a rich tapestry of things we have done and said
with memories of those we love outlined in golden thread.

Autumn holds more gold in its pocket than any other season

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has." ~ Epictetus

“Worries go down better with soup.” ~Jewish Proverb

Being happy isn't about what you've got. It isn't about what car you're driving, the house you're living in, the job you're working at or your environment.

Happiness is an attitude; it is a way of being and of thinking. 

Best Ever Tomato
Soup! Guaranteed. From an Indigo flyer a few years back

1 Set oven to broil.
2 Mix tomatoes, onions, garlic, oregano and olive oil in bowl
with salt & pepper.
3 Place on baking sheet. Broil for 10 minutes. Rotate tray
to char mixture.
GREAT TIP: Fire roasting tomatoes adds smoky flavour
to soup. If you do not have a grill, place tomatoes under
oven broiler.
4 Lower oven to 350˚F. Roast mixture for about 30 minutes.
5 Add canned tomatoes, broth and basil to pot. Bring to boil
and simmer. Add oven roasted tomatoes and simmer for
about 15 minutes.
6 Roughly puree soup. Let cool slightly, then fully puree.
7 Roughly chop basil for garnish. Drizzle with olive oil.
Serves 12
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 55 minutes

roughly chopped
2 red onions,
