Spring Pea Soup with Bacon

DSC_0704-2

It´s spring … The sun is shining every day more and the days are longer … DSC_0685-2But I just can´t wait the summer green! Every day I just watch my little tomatoes and herbs growing on my window sill. I just can´t wait until I can plant them on the balcony and in the greenhouse.

I can´t wait the summer fresh home planted vegetables and green salads and herbs. Because of that I did a green spring soup. Just to see the summer green which is almost like summer green.

In my opinion the frozen vegetables aren´t as bad as sometimes have been told. Usually the frozen vegetables are put on the freezer freshly. Frozen vegetables sometimes have more nutritious then the ones which have been long weeks on the supermarkets and sometimes even longer time on the way to the supermarkets. However, if the frozen vegetables are already melted then they should not be frozen again.
