Now this sounds very tasty. From Slender Kitchen – Cheesy Bacon Cauliflower Soup. Of course, I’d swap out the turkey bacon (can’t stand the smell and it tastes like pink cardboard to me) and reduce the cheese and use a full-flavoured cheddar or a stronger kind such as Asiago.

April is National Poetry Month – go write a poem. Go read a poem. Hug a poet. I whine from time to time about how much time it takes to write sometimes, how laborious it is to edit my novels or finish a short story. Imagine a poet having to get their inspiration, write it down on paper in a few spare lines then prune, prune, prune so that every word has resonance and builds the story they want to tell. Just thinking about that makes me weary. Go poets – the unsung heroes of literacy!

The key is moderation in all good things…
