On My Plate

The Photo a day topic for today is "On My Plate". After a dinner out last night, I haven't felt like having anything on my plate all day. That's how it usually is for me when we eat out. The portions are too big and heavy and I am left feeling full and 'un-hungry' for a while. Thankfully Sunday night is our soup night so something easy to digest was on the menu.

 Pumpkin soup with bacon and brie. I rediscovered Laura's blog last week and  Sunday night is soup night at Darroch Cottage too and she shared a lovely recipe last week for Kumara Soup with bacon and brie. I don't have the required kumara or even sweet potato in the house but I substituted pumpkin, as we have an abundance of those, and it was still a good combination. For Hope the non-soup eater, I made some pasta and stirred through the soup like a pasta sauce and she was more than happy with that. So happy in fact that she wants it for lunch tomorrow at school.
It really was perfect soup weather here today. I only ventured outside long enough to do the required chores for the animals and to bring in some wood for the fire.I love this kind of weather especially on a winter weekend when there is nowhere else we have to be.

Hi Tracy, I like the idea of a touch of brie in the soup and you have inspired me with the pasta sauce idea. We have a glut of pumpkins and I am looking for some inspiration.

Tracy, I just LOVE your scenery. (aside from the fact that all your recipes make my mouth water.)

Now the swimming season is over, our Friday Night Soup Night is Sunday Night Soup Night. Our soup last night wasn't a million miles from your dinner too - we had Sweet Potato and Chorizo. It was delicious!

I am making soup for tea tonight, as it is so cold and wet here today. Mine will be a veggie soup, just throw everything in a let it simmer...yum! I do love pumpkin soup though and yours looks so nice :)

I just liked your facebook page Tracy :)
