At one stage when I was cutting up that big green and orange pumpkin I showed yesterday, here's what I found staring back at me. Does it look like a cat to you? Or a demon of some kind?
It didn't scare me though, and I ended up making the soup I also described yesterday. It's like a soupe that I had many years ago in a little restaurant out in the country somewhere in France. I added poached, shredded chicken to enrich it, and fresh basil leaves on top for flavor and a color contrast.
It's pieces of pumpkin, potato, onion, garlic and a stalk celery cooked in chicken broth with milk. I put in pinches of spices like allspice, fenugreek, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. It was good.
Here's a link to the recipe.
