Laurie's Tip

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I absolutely love soup!  It is one of the reasons I love Fall so much – nothing better than a warm bowl of soup on a crisp day…so comforting to me.  I got the pumpkins to make this soup on the side of the road by my cottage.  We get pumpkins there every year – I love the fact they have an honour system for paying for the pumpkins…something comforting about that too.  What makes this soup is roasting the veg.  It really brings out the sweet flavour.  I  hope you enjoy!
