Pumpkin soup in the Autumn darkness

We were able ti harvest a single pumpkin from the four plants that we planted this Spring. It weighed in at just over 5 kg so we decided to have a family gathering with pumpkin soup and home made bread.

The soup is really easy: 1 pumpkin, 1 leek some carrots, spice with nutmeg, cayenne pepper, thyme and seasoned with salt. Add some cream just before serving.

Serve the soup with crisped cabbage, add company and you will have a great evening.

Just an ordinary guy trying to live an ordinary life. I do ordinary things like run, cycle and ski. I swim if I have to. I enjoy all sorts of music and like to play some too. I enjoy good food - maybe too much - and a glass or two.
