Thanks Renata!!!

Well, this week we have been enjoying a very large pot of the yummiest pumpkin soup ever!!

I want to thank Renata for sharing her recipe with me. Quote Saraya (really, I am not making this up)........ "Mmmmmmm, this is the nicest pumpkin soup recipe ever. (pause) ... And made by the best cook ever." :) I don't know about that, but wow this soup is good. I'll re-post the recipe here for you. This quantity made enough for our family for two meals, plus two mugs for lunches for me, and one lunch for Stu.

Pumpkin Soup:
Ing: 3/4 pumpkin; 2 potatoes; 1/2 large sweet potato; 2 onions; 1 carrot; 4 rashers bacon; chicken stock powder; 250 mls cream; salt & pepper;
Method: * Cut up all vegetables & bacon & put into large saucepan. Add water & boil with 1 tsp chicken stock til soft.
* Blend up until nice consistency (if you want it thick drain away some of the liquid before blending -this is how I like it). Add cream. Add salt & pepper & chicken stock powder to taste. Enjoy!
To change the taste you can use sour cream in place of the cream or even natural yoghurt for a low fat variety!

Stu just walked by and asked me to mention that this is not our wagon, and not our pumpkins either. I would have thought this self-explanatory, but I'll mention it anyway. :) I did search for a photo of Elijah harvesting ours this year, but I can't find it. I liked this one!

Renata's pumpkin soup is awesome. I made it too, and we loved it.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I love Saraya's comments - so sweet!

Well, it would be strange if it were your wagon and NOT your pumpkins... has someone potentially stolen your wagon to collect their own pumpkins?

So, thanks for clearing that up.

Yum, Saminda! That sounds delish - tell Saraya that she totally sold it! :o)
