Sickness Soup (Spinach and Pea)

I've had a fascinating new experience over the last few days: I think I've had 'flu. For the first time. I've tried to view it as a learning opportunity, but honestly, these are lessons I could have happily lived with out.

So, I had a cold which incorporated aching and exhaustion, which probably makes it 'flu, though I didn't have a fever, so didn't bother with the Swine 'Flu helpline. Anyway, the other astonishing symptom was - take a seat - loss of appetite. I'm not kidding, I missed quite a few meals, and didn't even think of having a snack. But yesterday, when I was marginally better than on Friday night, I thought I ought to have something. We have fresh spinach from this week's box, so I made a very simple soup, supplementing the spinach with frozen peas. Obviously, being sick I didn't measure anything, so this will be as vague as me when I made it. If you're fully -functioning, you might like to add some herbs (basil or mint would both be good), but really it's pretty tasty as-is:

  • Fill the kettle and turn it on
  • Put a couple of teaspoons of Marigold Vegetable Bouillon in a saucepan
  • Chop a handful or so of fresh spinach into about 1-2cm strips
  • Pour the now boiling water from the kettle into the saucepan - probably about 750ml-ish?
  • Turn on the heat under the saucepan, add the chopped spinach and some frozen peas - say half-to-one mugs-worth
  • Cover and bring to the boil
  • Check a pea and a picee of spinach stalk to check they are softened, and turn off the heat if so
  • Puree in a blender
  • Ladle into a bowl, grate over some hard cheese if you feel up to it, and return to your nest on the sofa to eat

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to

As a result of high end technologies, commercial ice machines are able to achieve “being green” the highest levels of energy and water conservation. Now a commercial ice machine can easily produce from 65 pounds to 2,000 pounds of ice cubes in a day. You can find varied shapes of ice cubes such as dice, half dice, octagon, crushed, nugget, and flake.

    Commercial ice machines are the standalone units,ice Machines designed to produce large quantities of ice for various commercial purposes. Once installed, these commercial ice makers are pretty automatic and do not need much attention from you or your staff. These factory-made machines consist of a condensing unit and ice-making section that operates as an integrated unit to make ice, an ice bin or a storage unit to store the created ice and a dispensing unit to dispense the ice out of the machine. Many automatic ice machines use moving water to create an improved quality of ice cubes. They work on the principle of “faster the water moves the better the ice quality becomes”. In this process, the air and un-dissolved solids get washed away. This results in pure and clear ice production.

    Large amounts of ice are demanded for various purposes in many ice Machines commercial entities such as Restaurants, Bars, Ice Cream Parlors, Bakeries, Country Clubs and Golf Courses.

All you need to do is just start the machine and set the required functions, and leave the rest up to the machine. You will get good quantity of quality ice in a short amount of time. In addition, many commercial ice machines come with a self cleaning function. This will help maintain the quality and quantity if the produced ice while decreasing the time that you and or your staff must spend with the machine.

    Keep in mind that there are two varieties of ice machines: air cooled and waterice Machines cooled. Air cooled ice machines use air to disperse the heat, whereas water cooled ice machine uses water to do the same function. Air cooled ice machines use more energy and also are much noisier than water cooled ice machines. However, they are more affordable than water cooled ice machines.

    An assorted collection of wonderful, fast and energy efficient commercial ice makers are readilyice Machines available in the market. Various renowned and reliable manufacturers have come up with their unique range of these amazing machines. Numerous models that create different types and sizes of ice are available in the local and online market.
