Chicken soup

We decided to use some of the leftover chicken to make our soup. It's difficult to photograph soup, but hopefully this will give some idea as to the end result.
We made a large pot of chicken stock by first boiling, then simmering the carcass for an hour or so together with a few carrots, onions and celery.
We then used approx 2 ltrs of stock to make our soup.
Chop up some fresh celery, onion, carrot and potatoes and put these into the chicken stock. I added 1 tablespoon of tomato puree, and checked the seasoning. Simmer until the vegetables are soft (about 30 minutes), then add the chopped chicken, shredded cabbage and peas (I had some mange tout handy as well) and cook for another 10 minutes or so (until chicken is hot). A couple of slices from a stick of granary and that was lunch.  Lunch is around 400 calories, so we may find ourselves hungry. I've got some cheese and fruit at the ready.
For tonight I've made a beef chilli con carne with kidney and pinto beans. We'll have that with a jacket potato. As the weather looks like it might stay dry, we're going to put the potato in the oven to cook while we go for a stroll. Being prepared takes effort, but it also allows us to relax with time for a leisurely walk to burn off a few calories. Provided we don't stop at the pub... all will be looking good for Monday!!
