Broccoli and Courgette Soup

It has been snowing on and off in Brussels since Thursday…. just when I thought that Spring was surely on its way … but *sigh*… my excitement and anticipation of spring on the prior temperate weather days was short-lived! Now the trees are white-tipped and people are unable to drive again 🙂

When the weather is like this… there is nothing better for lunch (or dinner) than a steaming bowl of home-made soup!
