We have a lot of talented cooks on our staff, and what's cooking at home is a common conversation. Tonight, Lois is making soup. Scotch broth in fact. I managed to coax the basics of the recipe out of her to share with you here:

-Saute lamb stew cubes in a little olive oil

-add a bunch of stock (of course we all have home made stocks in our freezer)

-add a bunch of finely diced carrots, onions, celery and parsnips

-throw in some pot barley

-Simmer away! Maybe a bit of tarragon?

Sounds like dinner, with a crusty baguette and a fresh salad....
