Why do I cook as though the infantry is coming for dinner?! Something in my upbringing gave me the impression it’s a waste of time and effort to not go big when cooking. There’s an efficiency expert hiding in some corner of my brain. This is rinsing kale and spinach by the boatload for Green Soup. Really – this soup is a fabulous thing even if the eponymous label doesn’t create a luscious mental (or actual) picture.
Oh, and I’ve got the same cooking issue with dessert: double batches of Buttermilk Oatmeal Cookies and Chai Spice Sugar Cookies.
And apparently a thing for recipes with blazingly obvious names!

It’s a standing joke in our family that my mum cooks for a small army whenever any family members come to stay. When she has all three daughters, their partners and the six grandchildren she goes slightly mad and we end up taking piles of leftovers to see us through the week!
