Okay. Something personal. 10 years of severe health difficulties. Still messed-up but not as much as before. Too many bad meds. General health and metabolism shot.

The soup really was amazing, so much so my mum who only had a small taste went out and bought the biggest cauliflower so I could make a batch for her! Hope you enjoy it, it's now my favourite soup. I didn't have any onions so used a whole leek instead, which worked well and I think I will continue to do.

Thanks for the tip on the Collard leaf. This has been on my list to find for a while now. Collard greens is just not something I've seen around much, actually I've never seen it. I often wonder if it's like Callalloo which is something I grew up on and love but can only find in small carribean markets in London. I mostly use Romaine lettuce for wraps but it would be great to try something which is much more hearty and wraps better, which it sounds like collards does. I will certainly keep an eye out for it at the market. I'm also on the hunt for grape leaves to make bitesize wraps too. So many amazing things I want to make just need to be smart about finding the ingredients!

Enjoy your Sunday

What you said in your blog's comment, I agree. No one seem to judge me in the sessions. I laugh and be as loud as I can when I play. Simply put, the 2 hours per session is when I don't have to worry about anything but to improve my skills and play hard!

Oh, and the Captain is pretty impressive and an inspiration. I'm happy that I know him in and out the field, along with other players, too :D

Thanks for your blog's comment. I think I need to withdraw from people; people make me so tired. I think I'm losing myself just by human interaction unless I can just be my true self. Anyhow, I was going to respond more to your blog's comment but I ended up saying a lot so I made another blog post.

I'm back to Spark after gaining back almost half what I previously lost. I'm glad you are still here.
