Yummy food prepared for the lunch

Sunday was a raining and at times blustery day a perfect atmosphere for having nourishing warm soup.  We have some wonderful cooks amongst our membership, that Spicy Thai Pumpkin Soup made with our pumpkin and lemon grass was to die for.  Rocket & Parsley pesto on homemade focaccia – yum.  The Sweet Potato and Ginger Soup had great zing, there was carrot soup, pumpkin soup, broccoli & cauliflower soup and a hearty barley, spinach & leek soup, banana muffins and spinach & parmesan muffins.  We picked our first mandarins and shared them around – very tasty.  Olive oil for dipping from the latest harvest of North Perth Primary School which includes olives from the garden’s tree.

Thanks to our friends at the Vincent Men’s Shed for offering us the use of their kitchen

facilities, and it was great to see some of them join us.  Thanks also to our Mayor Emma Cole for joining us on such a rainy day.

Thanks also to all those who contributed to the Salvation Army’s shaker tin as part of their Souper Heroes fundraiser, will update when I know how much we raised.
