A cold day here - we woke to a white blanket on the ground, and it snowed for most of the morning. It seemed a fitting day to turn the last pumpkin from the 2008 allotment harvest into an edible deliciousness. We have an understanding. I grow them so himself cooks them. So for lunch we sat down down to a bowl of most yummy soup. All that was missing was some crusty granary bread and butter, but then their absence was better for the waistline I tell myself. Enough left over to fill three containers for the freezer, which will be enjoyed as and when the need for soup calls. If the weather continues in the same vein it won't be long !
