I have been a bit unwell this week with a cold that is still lingering. I had last Wednesday off as a sick day to rest, which done me the world of good but, in hindsight I should have stayed away from work for maybe one more day to recuperate further. I probably would have been much better by now.
I made a couple of magnificent soups this week, really warming and full of goodness, kind of soups, that you just crave in winter or when you have been unwell. And next week I think I will make another really warming dish called Feguada. It's a Portuguese dish, handed down from lovely hubby's Gran. It is the perfect winter dish, it makes a huge quantity so I will invite all the family around to enjoy it.
