|As it is Royal Wedding Day here in the UK, it is a National Holiday. A lot of people have decided to come to our house to watch it and have Dinner afterwards.
However a lot of them have children who soon get bored. Luckily in the next street to us they are having a street party and the school in the street has offered its large hall for use in case it rains, which it might. So I asked if the younger children come come to the party as they have never seen a Royal Wedding or been to street party! The organizer said gladly, but can you cook something as it may be a bit cold for the children in the afternoon. They have the mothers making sandwiches plus jelly and Ice cream etc., can you do anything?
Quick thought then I rushed down the greengrocers as our tomatoes are not ready yet for some time. Any big boxes of really ripe tomatoes he sells very cheaply so I got some. Put them in the food processor bit by bit as there are a lot of them and straight into my crock pot (slow electric cooker). For I am making homemade tomato soup for the children, which they like in the UK.
Perfect for a chilly afternoon I think. We are dropping the children and the soup off as it is a two minute walk from here to the party, and then the men are going to the pub. Pick the children up on the way back.
I am cooking Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for everyone for Dinner followed by apple pie and custard!
