An annual event in our home apart from the great pumpkin carving, is the great pumpkin cooking.
In the late fall I love to make soups. Lots of soups. One favourite at our house is pumpkin soup.
Mushrooms, cream and a hint of nutmeg.
We usually puree the whole soup for the kids. Then they eat the mushrooms and onion. The recipe's from the Best of the Bridge Series, a must-have set written by a group of Canadian women who simply started cooking and meeting for Bridge. Each recipe is quite simple to make and always turn out delicious. I must say, the colour of the soup is a bit more orange with canned pumpkin too, but we enjoy using the pulp from our jack-o-lanterns. I may change the photos later. I find it harder to photograph well on rainy days or at night, but that's when I'm usually cooking the most. Any tips?
Hope you have a fun weekend!
