Mid Week Meal Time !

It's no secret that I love soup during Winter time.  Who doesn't?  However, I'm really not a fan of smooth, pureed soups.  Don't ask my why as I have no idea why that is.

Maybe I just don't find them hearty enough.

Or maybe it is the memory of wrapping up a friend's little sister in about 10 blankets like a baby many, many years ago, and feeding her soup until she threw up everywhere and we ran screaming from the house....?

 

Roasted Pumpkin and Almond Soup

 

I loved this soup as the almonds added a beautiful mellowness which worked so well with the sweetness of the pumpkin. 

A perfect mid-week Winter meal, but just as good served in little vintage cups for friends at a lazy Sunday afternoon tea.
