I put the pot on to boil, then down to a simmer before we went to meet my parents for a bit of shopping.
Casually mentioned to my mum that I was making the soup today, and that I'd left it to simmer while we were out. Her words? "Ooh, that's a bit of a high heat, you maybe should go home and make sure it's not dried out".
EEP! Panic. I had put plenty of water in, but stupidly, forgot that soup needs to be stirred!!
So I got home, gave it a wee gentle stir... And some of the soup had stuck to the bottom!! Argh!
However, it was rescuable, and turned out looking like this!!
