Series: Something Borrowed Part 1

I’m sure whether you are married or not, you are familiar with this phrase. We are living on borrowed time with borrowed people and both these things will be returned in one way or another.

Fortunately, there are certain things in life that we borrow, but never need to return. These are probably known as gifts but my title would not have the same ring to it if I used that word!

My adult survival kit is filled to the rim with tricks and trivia that I’ve learned from much savvier friends who are also trying to live this life as best as they can! I am grateful for every single one and am not ashamed to admit that I learned most of what I know from these people.

On Friday I had my 3:30 friends over at my place. When you host a 3:30 get together, you decide what the meal will be and everybody brings additional food and drink to share. Since it’s winter and you know how I feel about comfort food to survive the horrid season, I decided to make my 3:30 a soup, bread and gluwein affair. Because all I have is borrowed, I thought I should pay a soup recipe forward to you today. We have much to learn in this world and so it is my duty to pass along what has been passed along to me!

Hassiena’s Baby Marrow Soup


  • 1kg baby marrow
  • 25g Vegetable stock
  • 230g Cream cheese of any flavour
  • 500ml to 1L water


1. Wash and dice baby marrow into small cylinders

2. Dilute Vegtable stock in 250ml of water

3. Place marrow and stock into a pot and bring to boil until marrow is very soft.

4. Add cream cheese into the pot.allow to simmer until cream has melted and mixed with water

5. Using a smoothie maker or hand blender. Blend the mixture into smooth.

6. Add more water if is to thick. Allow to simmer at low heat for 5 minutes.

7. Enjoy on its own or with bread of your choice.

Serves 6 – 10 people.

Now, I know that you are a reasoning grown up so use your discretion as you are cooking this. Don’t be scared to use water instead of vegetable stock or maybe try a flavored cream cheese instead of a plane flavour. You can even use stock tubes ( 2 or 3) instead of stock; we have budgets to consider!

Shout out to my friend, Hassiena for sharing this yummy recipe!

Well, this was something different for me to make and it turned out great! I will share another super easy recipe next Sunday. I keep eating this at my friend Justin’s place and every time I visit, he tells me how to make it and I forget to do so! Next week is the day so stay tuned!

Thank you so much for popping in! It’s always such a pleasure to have you! Have a beautiful week😘
