When the winter kicks in and you need some warming up, nothing beats homemade soup. When someone makes it for you it's even better, like a whole lotta love ladled into one bowl and it's comfort food at its best. You could have lost your oyster card or stepped through a puddle but all the day's frustrations melt away with a bowl of soup.
Try perking up your veg with crispy pancetta and lovage. Its got a great fresh flavour, a little like celery and as Lovage tea can be applied to wounds as an antiseptic, I'm guessing it's probably doing you some good too!
