carrot soup

Personally, I'm not usually a great fan of carrots, and will avoid eating them, especially if they're not organic ... I'm extra fussy about wanting to get organic carrots because I guy I once knew worked for a chemical firm and he told me carrots had more gunk poured on them than any other veg, and he reckoned they carrots ae like sponges for it all .. so that put me off ...

anyway .. blah blah .. In pursuit of eating the rainbow I bought some Sainsbo's organic carrots a week or two ago and they were so nice, tasty and tender that I went out and bought more the next day.

Looking for them again yesterday they had SOLD OUT .. hmmph but they DID have organic batons on offer .. i.e. pre-chopped and 1/2 price so I got them instead, well two bags of them! I have to say they DO make a very nice soup, simply boiled up with a good stock, bit of celery and onion, bay leaf and thyme .. munch with the whizzy blender thing and stir in a dollop of cream ..

oh .....

and what are we doing with cream in the house? making a surprise second appearance in this week's blog? well you see .. our dinner guest bought it for us on Sunday, and ( some of it) was still there yesterday .. .. got to say if you're not on a low-fat diet a little bit of cream makes carrot soup a very yummy thing! aaaaaand, it's probably better to have cream with carrots than feel obliged to do another pudding thing cos you've got some cream in the fridge .. logical!

I like your reasoning on the cream front. Speaking for myself I would have put in a strong vote for 1/2 the cream in the soup and a small pudding to use the rest of the cream with. But then I am not gifted in either the small stomach or the fitness department.

to be honest there really wasn't much cream - or obviously your route would have been the way to go!
