MY DOLCE VITA
Tuesday, October 19, 2010
About a month ago our Daughter gave us a couple of pumpkins...
good timing as I had not made any Pumpkin Soup this season!!!
Collect some fresh parsley from our abundant little parsley pot...
Quickly fry up some onion, a bay leaf, garlic cloves, all spice...
some potatoes...and whatever else you fancy...
And in no time...Pumpkin Soup in a cup for JoJo...
together with some pizza fingers for her and Mr Dolce Vita...
Soup in a bowl for us...salt and freshly milled pepper...a dollop of cream or yougurt...parsley for colour...delicious!!!
garlic roll for me (gluten free)...
Thank you Jacqueline!!!
