I am blessed with a happy, bustling social life. My friends are always up to something fun, and this weekend was no exception. On Friday night I went with my friends Brooke and Jason to see Mortified, on Saturday my brother ‘s rugby team put on a party at Danny Coyles and Sunday was spent wine-tasting in Napa with Brett and having dinner and drinks with Matt. My soul? Satisfied. My body? Exhausted and a little hung-over. The solution? A healthy, simple soup that will perk up my senses and soothe my achy head (and detoxify my liver). Delicious, fast, super-cheap.
