Last week my net connection was down so you can imagine the suffering ;) , the worst part in it was that I could not post to my blog when I had promised I would have something up  every week  :( . Well I also believe that every cloud has a silver lining,  this week was my movie time so I didnt get time to cook still I can talk to you about a new dish.

I generally cook on Sundays as thats when am free and up in the morning :) last Sunday I had made Soup. All those who know me will tell you Sunday and no chicken...SURPRISE...!!! Well thats a funny little story. I wanted to make chicken and had asked the butcher on Friday itself to keep one ready for me by Saturday evening. When I went on Saturday he said its over so I told him to keep one by Sunday morning. I went to the shop 5 times on Sunday and he could not get chicken. Can u believe a butcher shop without meat or chicken :) .

Genarally its said we should get the ingredients available and then decide on the dish..... there's where i totally differ, I always plan what I wanna make and then go shopping. I have faced this problem of changing my plans at the end moment several time but it never happened that I didnt get the main ingredient. Anyways failing to get any chicken I was so sad and needed something comforting and easy to cook....so my Roasted Vegetable Soup was created
