It's a windy cold morning here in Northern Ontario, but not as cold as it has been. Freezing rain is on its way mixed with more snow and ice pellets, lovely.
I'm hoping for spring to soon come to us, its been such a long winter. I made Tortellini soup the other day and this painting of the red barn is where I had first had eaten it on a chilly April day. A barn converted to café and gift shop, a wonderful place to visit, though the café is gone now my memories carry on. I painted the barn not because of the soup although it was good no, it was the way the barn stood out so proud and straight after years and years of service.I just liked the way it looked framed by the beautiful landscape around it.
I snapped a photo so I could paint it later .
Its amazing how food can hold such clear memories isn't it.
We are really quite simple basic creatures when it comes right down to it.
We live such complicated lives, mostly by our own doing but it really is quite basic what we need in life.
We need food, warmth, water and love.
and the red canoe in our special place I painted in this painting lol.
I couldn't live without that!
I've linked this recipe for the soup but to be honest I never used this, I just fly by the seat of my pants when making soup, I never use a recipe. I found this one and its close to mine but we never really do the same recipe twice when making soup do we,,
just use what we have.
Is that the way you make soup?
