My Wife does Vegetable Soup

My Wife surprised me with this request, “I want to make a vegetable soup!” She said.

“Blimey, that’s out of left field” I said “What is wrong with you?” “Are you ill.” “You never want my vegetable soups.”

She said. “No Chillies, chilli powder, anything spicy and we are going easy on the pepper.” “Okay” I said, slightly taking offense. “Let’s do it together”. “Ooh Err” she said putting on her pinnie…..
