Pumpkin Soup

Winter is definitely in the air down here in (near) Melbourne town.

It’s time for snuggling up with cups of tea, soups and stews.  I love this time of year, I love rain, I love dressing in layers, and I especially love winter sun.

I love soups, creamy, thick, watery, spicy, they’re the best!

Before J and I had meet, he’d never cooked a soup, can you believe this.  I was quick to rectify this.  And now he experiments with the best of us!

  1. Yes, it’s getting cold. I actually am a summer person. I don’t like the cold at all. The only thing I do like about it is slow cooking and making soups. What a lovely looking pumpkin soup xx

    1. Charlie, I also love summer. For me it’s one or the other, I hate the in between! But I do love soup!

  2. I too am a soup fan – particularly spicy ones. In fact, inspired by your post, I think I will have pumpkin soup for lunch today. Yum.

    1. Lizzie, pumpkin soup is my absolute favourite! I couldn’t believe that’d he’d never made soup before either, but I’m glad he’s rectified that!

    1. I wish it wasn’t that cold here but it is. I think pumpkin soup is my favourite too.

    1. I have tried it and I love it if I have the time, it definitely adds a wonderful sweetness to the soup.
