The tomato lady soup...!

1 large onion chopped
half a medium pumpkin chopped
6 - 8 medium ripe tomatoes
2 cups of chicken stock (4-5 cubes)
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
2 teaspoons basil

Put everything in a soup pot. Bring to the boil, 
cover and simmer
 until pumpkin is soft.
Puree and then strain
Serve with lots of black pepper and sour cream

Once you have made this soup using the recipe above
you can then improvise like I do
garlic not crushed, basil not chopped
sometimes more pumpkin than tomato
sometimes the other way round!!

and truly, somewhere in there, there is also pumpkin

Top hated pumpkin soup and really disliked tomato soup
but this is one of his absolute favourites
and every year I fill a freezer drawer full.
on Sunday night a warm bowl and some crusty bread 

In the height of summer sieve twice 
so it is like velvet and serve cold

at the moment my freezer is full of many different types of soup
made by incredibly wonderful women
but there is no Tomato Lady Soup!!!

I thought you might like to try this with me
and we can all share a bowl

This is my world....!

This is my view
at present

I am
by wonderful people
even with 
a full house 
the loneliness
is unrelenting!

thinking rationally?....I don't think so.

My concentration and rational thinking 
are rather limited at present
This morning I 
put the tea bag in the dishwasher
and the spoon in the bin
Took the wash out of the washing machine
went into answer the phone
came back out
put the wash back in the machine and washed it again!!!!!!

Maggie joined Top last week
so they are walking together now.

I will come back soon

 I thank you all
for the well wishes here and the emails
