It was a miserable day here with squally showers and blustery winds a blow. Indeed it was a perfect day for soup. I purchased a bag of macadamia nuts from a guy at the farmers markets on the weekend for $3.00 and whilst many were consumed during the nut cracking process yesterday we did have enough left over for soup. Perfect for such a dreary day.
