Question 13 from today's Good Weekend quiz:
Which book begins: 'Where's Papa going with that axe?' said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast'?
I know! Charlotte's Web! I just finished reading it in the bath on Wednesday night!
Gosh it's easy to spend $100 at a bookshop, isn't it? I went a bit silly at Borders again today. I bought four more Dr Seuss books to add to my collection. I've now read 26 of his 65(ish) books (if you include those written under pseudonyms).
I also bought two non-fiction books.
I made soup this week. When winter approaches, I try to prepare myself for it by thinking of the good things about cold weather, which include nice hot, homemade soup. And then I never make any.
But not this winter! I made some cream of vegetable soup. I even made the stock. It's a not-very-appetising snot colour, but it's palatable, nutritious and also low allergy.
Next up I'm thinking...cream of brussels sprouts soup. Really! Stop gagging. I love the tiny cabbages.
