Hi! My name's Melissa and smellymellyblinks is a collection of daily life, fashion, food and music. In case you're wondering about the name smellymelly, it is indeed a nickname that comes from my partner in crime, Ian.
We’ve become lazy over the past few weeks, in hopes of cooking less we make soups and stews that last us for days. All those people that say they don’t have time to cook, this recipe calls out your name. I took this recipe from Smitten Kitchen, added a few extra ingredients (carrots, onions) in order to bulk it out more and thereby lasting longer. I think the key to this recipe is letting the tomatoes roast in the oven for a good hour. By doing that, you get a flavor that is out of this world plus your house smells amazing.
On a side note, I have no idea how some food bloggers are able to get mouthwatering photos of their food. I tried taking a few pictures of the soup but the heat kept getting in the way and fog up my camera lense.
