Can't complain about the weather as it is quite pleasant these past few days.
Just sick of cooking. Would be nice if hubby could cook a bit more. :laugh5:

I had steak pudding and mushy peas for dinner but boiled some broth bits so by teatime I had a Cornish Pasty and mixed veggies with a cream trifle for pudding that Kathy had slipped into my bag together with a 250ml Jersey Single cream that was on its last day. So I got some plums and stewed them. Guess what's for pudding today!

What is the difference between Broth (which in tins seems insubtantial to me - something you might have if you are feeling a bit ill from some virus or otherwise) and Soup - which is either all liquid or has chunks of meat and/or vegtables in it?

Broth is clear and strained of all solid matter ( basically clear stock made without thickening agents and infused with the flavour of whatever veg or meat was simmered of it. I made some today actually, as my husband loves it. Very flavoursome)
Soup is more substantial of course and may or may not have its liquid thickened, either by adding a thickening agent or liquidising the veg to release their starches as natural thicker. I tend to add milk to white soups, such as Chicken Soup.

After you have had an operation and haven't eaten for days, hospital broth is a magic thing indeed and can really perk a person up.

My next sheep hasn't come yet so I cooked steak, kidney and onions as well as the usual veggies. Dinner was meat pie and veggies. Tea was a scotch egg with veggies and gravy from the stew. No afters, I even forgot I had a helping of stewed plums left in the fridge!
