Broccoli soup and Scottish oat bread

Since I completed the cooking challenge, have had a hard time not taking pictures of everything I make :). So, with a cold snowy Sunday and the forecast of a Nor'easter for Sunday night, decided to make another soup from the cooking without recipe section. It was the perfect day to bake a nice hearty loaf of bread and big steaming pot of soup. I chose the broccoli recipe, used leaks, carrots and celery, some nice mellow curry, olive oil and my favorite Penzys chicken stock paste. Decided to skip the bacon and go with the healthier carrots for the garnish.

Some of my friends and I are going to participate in a fund raiser May 9, either 10 25 or 50 miles, will probably opt for 25 depending on the weather and the amount of hills, it is in New Hampshire, so we'll see.
