This week seems to have flown by. I had intended to write about my mini Halloween feast the day after Halloween but it just didn’t happen.
We had so many pumpkins from our little pumpkin picking outing that I decided to try and make pumpkin soup. Essentially all I did was chop up the pumpkin and an onion, cook them in butter and add stock. Obviously I added salt and pepper and blended it but it was otherwise really simple. And it was actually really nice. I also used the pumpkin seeds and roasted them with chilli.
My mini Halloween feast included a bowl of pumpkin soup, devil dog courtesy of Tesco (black coloured hot dogs with green coloured ketchup), soldiers (sticks of toast), sweet potato fries and witches fingers (mozzarella sticks in a green bread crumb coating with tomato relish). It looked really good and Halloweeny and tasted really nice too.
I still have a few pumpkins left so may do some pumpkin spaghetti or a pumpkin pie. Halloween this year was so much fun and Amelia looked adorable in her little pumpkin vest and green cardigan.
