Well im preparing 2Litres of french onion soup and 1.5L of broccoli and cheese soup at the current time.  Fingers crossed its going to work out nicely. 

I also bought a family size pack of peppers from the reduced section - 4 red, 1 yellow so im thinking i could maybe roast the peppers and then whizz them up with a bit of stock and perhaps some chilli powder to make a spicy pepper soup?  Does that sound like it would work?  Or i could roast a parsnip with the peppers to make the soup a bit thicker?

I think you may well need something to thicken the pepper soup - quite watery veg aren't they?  I dunno about Parnsip, my personal view is that the taste of parsnip would overwhelm the flavour of the roast peppers.  Try using a tin of tomatoes, with some chopped garlic, chicken stock and onions.  Serve topped with a few flakes of dried chilli and a sprig of fresh basil.

Cheers Patti, ill give that a go tomorrow. 

I have to say both the onion  and the broccoli soup taste lovely.  Frozen 12 portions in total which will last a good while.

I used to use marg tubs to store my soups (and anything that was a 1 person thing) but since I use butter in a dish now I don't have any new ones and all my old ones are past it. So I'll need to buy some tupperware ones. Guess there is one downside to using real food (i.e. butter instead of marg)

Poundland and/or Poundstretcher do some good tupperware type boxes at low cost Liam.   Or sometimes you can get sets that are graduated in size from Lidl or Aldi cheap.

Yeah I know they are cheap, I just always forget to buy them. It was my Gran that used to use old marg tubs and it is just something I've always done.

You could add chicken stock to the celeriac and leek soup to make it more like vichysoisse only better :)
