Sunday’s daily walk – finally wearing jeans- not leggings and with clean hair too

Sunday's daily walk - finally wearing jeans- not leggings and with clean hair too.  .
One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life - even briefly.

Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons

Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons.
.
2 brown onions
Olive oil
Teaspoon brown sugar
Couple of cloves
Couple cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (made from a previous roast chicken dinner and frozen in small bags ready for use) or a well-flavoured vegetable stock.
Slice/s of sourdough toasted.
Quantities make enough for 1 self-isolating hungry person or 2 less- hungry people  according to the amount of chicken stock you use.
The cloves, sugar and caramelisation of the onions are what give the soup its zing! .

Cooking and eating healthily is important

Cooking and eating healthily is important.
when you're in Corona lock-down or self-isolation. 
Our grandparents were clever to never waste any food.  They had to be.  They were rationed. We are used to abundance so I'm going to be demonstrating my ways of using leftovers for tasty recipes that could stretch across a week. 
Video clip is a Sunday roast- chicken, baked potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic. 
Photos and are a chicken, leek and onion pie with the remainder of the roast potatoes sliced on top and then baked in the oven topped with seeds and breadcrumbs (that fell off my sourdough loaf when I sliced it) and olive oil on top.
Video chicken stock from all the meat and veg remains and additional herbs and leeks and onions and green vegetable water.
Healthy eating helps immunity. .

In case anyone was wondering why I haven’t been posting – I am on week #3 of still coughing – NOT Corona Virus

In case anyone was wondering why I haven't been posting - I am on week of still coughing - NOT Corona Virus.- recovering from a normal Flu virus. Hoping my immune system will keep fighting on without resorting to antibiotics.
Ginger and turmeric are anti- inflammatory.
Here are some of the supplements I have been taking. I have now added Zinc into the mix too. .

Sale shopping bargains

Sale shopping bargains

We all like to find a bargain or two to add to our wardrobes when we're not re-wearing or upcycling our clothes- as the Duchess of Cambridge did last night at the Baftas.

Wearing vibrant colour can bring you joy and brighten up your day.
Sometimes it's good to venture out of your comfort zone and experiment.

Cotton crop polo-neck from Zara (under £10) 
Blue trousers from Zara sale £5.99 (reduced from £29.99)
