Joining in with Emma's Splash of Colour week, this is my contribution for January. I have to admit that I don't really mind this time of year. I find the New Year with its promise of new beginnings and fresh starts all rather exciting... enough to make me overlook the grey skies and short days... at least for the first week or two. And my optimism extends to actually believing that I will lose weight and get fitter etc etc ... you would think at my age I would know better.
This is my favourite soup for when I'm in this "fresh start" frame of mind... an orange, ginger and lentil soup that feels as though it is doing good with every mouthful. Fresh flavours and fresh colours, especially when sprinkled with a liberal dose of parsley.
