Why hello there. Do you remember me? I used to run this blog.
Then I started a graduate job and it slowed down a little. Then I took on a second job (more on that in a second) and the blog came to a complete stand still.
I’m not really into the whole new year, new me business. Really you’re just setting yourself up for a fail.
However, a new year did seem like a good opportunity for re booting my little ol’ blog, and so here we are.
So about that second job? I’ve been developing recipes as well as styling them and taking photos.
Exciting right? It’s been stressful and tiring trying to do my job in marketing and freelance work, but in the end I’ve loved every minute and am so grateful for the opportunity.
The only downside is that whilst I’ve been cooking my little socks off in every spare minute I have, I’ve neglected the blog. And it’s my blog that got me the freelance work! Vicious circle.
Today it seems I have come full circle though, whilst I was digging around in the fridge trying to magic some dinner, I realised I had an abundance of green vegetables all about to turn. These vegetables came from various jobs and from me buying pretty looking produce in the greengrocers promising myself I’d photograph it for my portfolio.
This excess crop of vegetables gave birth to this beautiful, fresh and healthy soup.
The perfect way to welcome Mess Makes Food into 2015.
Best of all, it’s quick, simple and super adaptable.
Got some mushrooms in the bottom of the fridge? That’s fine, throw them in (I did).
Broccoli that you’re not sure how long it’s been in the freezer. In it goes (Guilty).
