Introduced to me in my later years.
In fact the first time I tasted Pumpkin soup was in Jamaica
many years ago. I remember asking the waiter what kind of soup it was
as it was so tasty. When returning home I started making it.
Butternut squash soup
started making this a few years ago.
They are both so tasty, healthy and easy.
Only problem with the Butternut squash is
it is difficult for me to cut.
Cut in half and bake in oven before scooping out the flesh.
I usually add chopped carrots, onions, celery, thyme to both
and as long as my parsley holds out
I sprinkle some on top.
Pumpkin soup taste just as good to me and easy with canned pumpkin puree
unless a pumpkin is on hand.
This time of the year
I can eat soup every day for my main meal
and at this time of life all recipes are reduced
except sweets :)
potato soup with chopped broccoli and bacon on top.
something I had not made in quite a while. Pea salad and had all of the ingredients on hand.
Small can of LeSuer peas, some chopped celery, onion, pickle, cheese, green pepper,
2 hard boiled eggs and enough Hellman's mayo to be pleasing and since I was
going to make pimento cheese and had a jar of pimento on hand I just sprinkled some of that on top.
The same friend that reminded me of the pea salad reminded me also of a cake
I had tried in the past, had the recipe but never made.
Oh my - Kahlua chocolate cake, now that I have purchased some Kahlua
I am to to make soon but in the meantime using this special drink on vanilla ice cream
and can use in coffee. With a dry mouth from Scjogrens Syndrome I cannot
drink an occasional glass of wine but this treat does not bother me.
There is a lot happening lately that is keeping me unsettltled and seems it helps
when I write, walk, cook and iron.
Getting ready to walk and then starch and iron a 1/2 dozen
Now Saturday morning and a lovely weekend for the forcast
and plan on being quiet and enjoying my nature surroundings.
