Don't let the nonstop rain outside get you down, fellow Melbournians! Try my 'semi-guaranteed' cures for the Winter Blues instead:
1. Surround yourself with fresh flowers. Mine were foraged from the roadside while walking home. The cheapskates way to decorate.
2. Make Sarah Britton's Split Pea Sunshine & Saffron Soup. So tasty AND healthy. My secret ingredient for delicious soups used to be a huge hunk of butter, but this recipe has proven to me that soup can taste amazing without it!
