Sister Visit!

So awesome to have one of my sisters back in Tasmania for a visit! I picked Rosemary up this morning and we started in style with a late cooked brekkie – with thanks to the chooks!

Photo by Rosemary – I was busy wolfing mine down to pause for a photo!

Totally hit the spot!

Jeff was sleeping off another night shift, so it was just the two of us for the afternoon. After a tour around the very neglected garden, we set off to do a walk. It was an overcast day, but pretty nice out there!

At some point I will have to get a greater collection of rock photos from down here… I love the colours & textures.

Back home we picked the first of the pumpkin and the last of the corn! Rosemary got the honour of eating the corn! 😀 I was glad there was one left to share!
We made a pumpkin soup and fresh salad

Such a small pumpkin!!
Colour inside was pretty good.

Pumpkin soup is best if you roast the pumpkin first!
I have probably blogged it down somewhere before, but anyway – its a really simple soup.
I frizzle up some onion and garlic, then add in a litre of chicken stock. A couple of medium sized potatoes and the baked pumpkin. Boil then simmer.
When the potatoes are cooked I blend the lot then add a can of coconut milk.
Done. Easy. Tasty!

  1. Pumpkin soup rocks. My recipe is more simple–pumpkin/squash, onions, broth. Whenever I add coconut milk I also add ginger. Great tastes.
