Curried Pumpkin Soup


Curried Pumpkin Soup

I originally wrote back in November, 2009:
Love this pumpkin soup, especially around this time of year. No one usually guesses that mushrooms are in it. It is a very simple, yet deeply flavorful soup. A crowd-pleaser.
Made this soup this week.  It continues to be one of our favorites. This time I served it for dinner --- with cheese and bacon ciabatta sandwiches---with a  little arugula salad.

October: Germany

October: Germany

The truth is I am not very excited about German food.  I am hoping others have something good to share this month.  I found a German and Viennese cookbook at the library book sale over the weekend which I am hoping has some goodies in it.  I am keeping an open mind.

On the tablescape for Germany are:

  • Sauerkraut - fermented moist cabbage
  • Wurst - sausages and cold cuts
  • Pork Schnitzel - a bread pan-fried boneless pork chop
  • Potato pancakes and applesauce
  • Kasspatzen - a Bavarian dish of spaetzel and cheese
  • Pretzel - a twisted knot of salty baked dough
  • Beer stein - a vessel for quenching your thirst with beer
  • Black forest cake -layers of chocolate cake with whipped cream and cherries
