Shoop


Two of my girls will eat a toasted cheese sandwich for lunch every day of the week, if I let them. The other has developed a bit of a thing for 'shoop'.

"What's for lunch today, Pearl?"
"Shoop."

It's not fancy grown-up shoop, overnight-soaked or slow-simmered. It's whatever's in the fridge, last-night's leftovers, quick and easy shoop. 





We usually peel a carrot, a potato and some sweet potato, diced large, and saute it in a saucepan with some celery and garlic, diced small. Chicken stock is added, about 500ml, and some sliced green beans. When the vegies are tender - about 10-15 minutes - we throw in last night's leftover pasta or rice or noodles, some chopped chicken, if there's any, and a handful of frozen peas.


And that's it. Shoop. 

Easy. Nutritious. Apparently quite tasty.

  6. Aren't your girls good eaters! I would be ecstatic if Angus ate a spoonful of this, he refuses to eat ALL veggies at the moment. It looks delicious, I have to say. And yay to cheese toasties seven days a week. x
