What I Did Today - I Made Some Brilliant Winter Soup (and visited a "Pet Shop")

Updated on June 24, 2013

The "Pet Shop" and The Winter Soup..

I had a plan for today. I thought it would be pretty amazing to go to a pet shop. Cute animals are always fun, right?

Well, something happened that made that impossible so instead I made some nice warm winter soup

The Warming Winter Soup..

I took a little walk in a forest that is by a river, that was on the way to the.. pet shop. I spotted a few odd things on my way and made my usual obscure commentary.

I was in a little bit of a rush when I made the video so some of the ingredients that are seen at the end are not mentioned at the start of the video.. But basically you can add pretty much anything you like to the soup. As long as it is natural :)

If you want to cook the soup you see in the video you will need:

- Beef (the goulash sort) make sure it is good quality otherwise it will taste dry.

- Courgettes

- Carrots.

- Onions.

- Garlic.

- A stock cube.

- Apple vinegar.

The soup needs to be cooked/simmered for at least an hour. Bring the soup to an initial boil and then turn the soup down as low as you can.

Have A Look At What I Did Today...

All in all...

This soup is really great, healthy, easy to make and cheap. It takes a little while to cook but it is worth it and if you wanted to you could store it and have it another day.

(- None of the meat came from the "pet shop" ! I guess I need to improve my German, though! -)

      It seems to be quite hard to find decent meat everywhere. I can understand you being nearly vegitarian, I have tried to go that way but I always feel like something is lacking. I guess everyones bodies need different things in different quanties.

      It was a shame I didn't find that pet shop... I will keep trying though! :)

      I also love going to the pet shop and feel the love that puppies inspire in me, I just want to eat them :) they are so cute. So.... nice beef soup instead hu? The beef looks great, I wish I could get some of that at my grocery store where the meat section is terrible..... I've practically become a non meat eater because of its poor quality.
